Green Gaels Student Club
Green Gaels is a student organization dedicated to promoting climate advocacy, environmental justice, and sustainability through education, events, and programming.
We organize and participate in educational talks, outdoor activities and environmental awareness events. Past events include Ecochella, a solar-powered, environmentally conscious concert held on campus, hikes in the East Bay area, lectures, movie viewings and cleanups both on and off campus.
