Eco Club took a field trip to Skokie Lagoons today to help clear away invasive buckthorn trees.  Below are pictures of all our volunteers learning about buckthorn's incredible survival skills and how they're choking out the other natural species of the area.

We're back at school & Eco Club's decided it's time to change up our old aquaponics system.  We're in the process of de-constructing it and are researching ways to make our new system more efficient.  Let us know if you have any ideas!

Lost a lot of fish this summer due to the heat. The greenhouse plants are doing alright, having some technical problems with the system though :(. But! Looking foward to the coming school year and new projects to get involved in!

The Eco club just participated in the Taste of Whitney Young, an annual, upbeat food festival, with all the food provided by the various WY clubs. The Eco club sold chocolate covered strawberries, bananas and Kanapple-Berry smoothies (kale, apples, strawberries and bananas), which were all super delicious! We got A LOT of tickets and our smoothies were going fast. YAY FOR THE TASTE OF WY!
