  • Asian Long Horned Beetle

  • Pollinator Protection

Cell Phone and Battery Collection:

An early project of the Roundtable was to collect old cell phones and other batteries so that they could be recycled or disposed of properly.

Paper or Plastic...Neither!:

Volunteers from the Roundtable asked local supermarkets to donate reusable shopping bags and distributed them to club members.

Organic Produce:

Many local farmers pride themselves in growing healthy organic produce. Visit this page for a list.

The Roundtable spearheaded WGC advocacy efforts to support the Updated Bottle Bill Ballot Question for the November 4, 2014 election.

Members of the Roundtable participated in the WGC Pollinator Project and help create “A Guide to Pollination” for members and the public. For an informative folder, click here.
