Green Gaels Student Club

Come to our general body meetings every first and third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM! Questions about Green Gaels? Reach out to us at greengaelssmc@gmail.com or DM us on instagram @greengaelsclub

Green Gaels is a student organization dedicated to promoting climate advocacy, environmental justice, and sustainability through education, events, and a change in the status quo.

We organize and participate in cleanups, educational talks and seminars, 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.

Meet the members of our exec team!
