Green Groups

1. LEAP

The League for Environmental Awareness and Protection is a vibrant organization at Lake Forest. Their primary accomplishments revolve around building and maintaining sustainable practices on campus.

2. Campus Sustainability Committee

The CSC is an elected committee composed of Faculty, Staff, and Students. The Committee aims to make informed decisions for a sustainable future of the college.

CSC is currently focused on the restoration of natural areas on campus. In the Fall semester of 2013-14, the Committee and Environmental Studies students broke ground on Revery Prairie, a new patch in Middle Campus that will be restored to native prairie grasses, similar to the established Shooting Star Savanna

Additional initiatives include efforts in energy efficiency, landscaping on campus, and hosting lecturers for the campus community.

3. NAWS

NAWS – The Nature Appreciation and Wilderness Survival Club – is the college’s newest green organization.

NAWS was started by students in the Fall of 2013 and strives to promote an understanding of our environmental surroundings through skills training and participation in recreational opportunities in our local, natural world. 

4. Slow Food Club

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization which links the pleasure of good food with a commitment to community and to the environment.

The students at Lake Forest have started a Slow Food Club on campus in response to the campus garden and the Biodiversity and Agriculture class. Connecting to this movement’s mission, they have established the aim to educate campus about delicious, local, sustainable foods. The first event they held for the campus was a Beer Tasting event which highlighted craft beers from local breweries and food pairings for each different type of beer.
