The faculty and student body at RMC believe that discussing and learning about environmental issues are not enough. We strive to inspire students to create change in their communities now and to become involved in local organizations and projects. We have an environmental club that is involved in making campus a greener place through recycling programs and other initiatives.
Students in the introductory environmental science class (ESS 105) annually research and write proposals describing methods to reduce their ecological footprint on campus and implement new ideas and technologies. If you like to take charge and make changes, the opportunities at RMC are endless. Off campus, students are involved with the Audubon Society through bird surveys and field trips, on the annual Yellowstone River "float" clean-up and with many research projects that can lead to changes in the local community and the environment.
We have also developed working partnerships with non-profit organizations, such as the Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society (YVAS), that let us use their facilities and classes.
