The Niwot Environmental Club is a group of passionate youth that is dedicated to making a positive impact on the planet through Climate Activism. The Environmental Club engaged in a multitude of Climate Actions throughout the 2019-2020 school year. From protesting at the Global Climate Strike at the Capital, to revamping Niwot High School’s Waste Management System, to advocating for a ban on Fracking at Boulder County Commissioner Public Meetings, the Club was constantly engaged in meaningful action.
