SPARTA, NJ - Since March 13, 2020, when school officially closed due to state quarantine orders, Ecology Club has been on an informal hiatus due to logistical issues with social distancing, stay-at-home orders and graduating leadership. The Eco Club is back with full force for the 2020-2021 school year, despite any challenges Covid-19 may present.
A new club Instagram was created, symbolizing a fresh beginning for the club, as well as increased initiative to encourage club involvement. The Instagram, under the handle @shs.ecoclub, puts up weekly posts on news highlights of environmental issues both close to home and on a planetary scale, and is a great informal news source to keep you updated on environmental issues around us. This Instagram is also where socially distanced cleanups, partnerships, and projects will be posted.
"We hope you join us in helping the Sparta community become a cleaner, safer space,"the Eco Club's leadership said.
