Our chief purpose is to address environmental and conservation issues on campus through formulation of policies, awareness programs, and consultation.  We have developed "Natural Regeneration areas" on campus.  There are areas where the grounds department has stopped mowing grass and which have been allowed to regenerate.  Some tree planting has been done, but this has been largely unsuccessful.  We basically determined the best policy was to just leave them alone.  We are seeking new members.
