Howdy Ags! We have so many exciting blog posts coming at you this semester, but for the first of this fall, we wanted to introduce you to some of the other amazing, environmentally conscious student organizations at A&M! With one of Howdy Farms' central goals being sustainability, there are so many related organizations to share here on the A&M Campus!
We involve our members and the campus community in fun, sustainable events all year including Campus Sustainability Day, Texas Recycles Day, and the Sustainability Challenge! We also participate in service activities like Replant, Stream Clean, and Big Event! Students are encouraged to join us for weekly meetings, Sunday nights at 9 pm in Hullaballoo 117B to learn more about these events, our service activities, and sustainability as a whole.
Since 2011, Aggie Replant also puts on the Lost Pines Recovery Campaign, where student volunteers takes buses to Bastrop State Park to plant pine seedlings. In 2010, a very large fire consumed a large portion of the pine trees in Bastrop and the Chancellor of Texas A&M committed Aggie Replant to be the first group of students to help in the reforestation project. Lost Pines Recovery Campaign this Spring will be spread over 6 days and involve around 100 student volunteers a day. Last Spring, Aggie Replant planted over 10,000 pine seedlings over two days with 215 students. Aggie Replant also has a Tree Farm on Texas A&M's Rellis (Old Riverside) Campus where we store and grow trees donated to us throughout the year!
Replant Day 2016 will be held on October 15th. Sign up to volunteer at replantonline.tamu.edu.
We also coordinate with all the other environmental groups to throw an Earth Day Celebration for the Texas A&M Campus. In addition we provide our members a platform to voice their environmental concerns to the campus not only through policy, but with tabling events to stimulate the community's education and passions as well. We are passionate about the environment and strive to make a support system for others like us, we bleed maroon by living green!
