Environmental Club is one way of the fun ways you can get involved at Northley. Environmental Club is open to every student in 6th-8th grade. As long as you are interested in committing to helping the Earth, community, and your school you can join.
The Environmental Club typically meets every other Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00.
Some projects we have done in the past include making a bird house, a butterfly garden, nature walks, and organizing the Northley recycling program.
