Community Involvement / Stewardship
RMC Environmental Science program and Yellowstone Research Center named Recycle Montana's recycler of the year.
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 and to become involved in local organizations and projects. We have an Environmental Club that is involved in making campus a greener place through a solar panel program, native plant landscaping, recycling programs and other initiatives. If you like to take charge and create change, the opportunities at RMC are endless.
Off campus, students are engaged with a number of different state, federal and nongovernment organizations. All freshmen take part in our annual river cleanup. This project is a fun day on the river and incredibly rewarding. To date we have removed over 105,000 lbs of metal and almost 500 tires. See the YRRC website for more details on this project.
