Our Environmental Club will be run by Darya Watnick, Jewish Engagement Manager

The Environmental Club will
have an education component about current environmental issues, from agriculture to chemicals in personal care products, to interests in animal care. Each club will include an activity including planting seeds, making beeswax lip balm or bird feeders. Our activity addresses the current environmental concerns during that day club.
