Green Groups


The League for Environmental Awareness and Protection is a student run organization. They actively work on and off campus to promote sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Campus Sustainability Committee (CSC)

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.

Every year, the CSC initiates sustainability projects on campus, such as planting trees, reducing food waste, creating a comprehensive campus sustainability plan, expanding the natural prairies on campus, funding bird deterrent window treatments, expanding rates of recycling, encouraging reduced paper use, funding energy efficiency projects, and more.

The Lake Forest College Student Garden at Glen Rowan

The Student Garden, located behind the Glen Rowan House, is an organic garden maintained entirely by student workers.

The garden stewards are in charge of everything from planning and planting to tending, harvesting, and selling. Produce grown in the garden is sold at the Middle Campus Market and in town at the Lake Forest Farmers’ Market. Extra produce is given to Parkhurst and used in the campus cafeteria.
