Bunny Bunch Rescue: Save the bunnies, save the world. Like CatsInNeed, you help clean the rabbit cages, play with the rabbits, and feed them. A fun event and easy points. Going on every Saturday from 12:30-3:00 PM. Located at the Chino Hills Petco. ---Event Coordinators: Rena Yang.
Bolsa Chica: This will be held a couple times a year. The place is stunning, with large bodies of water and greenery. You can see birds such as cranes everywhere. Activities include weeding, tree planting, and watering. Private tours will be thrown in for a day of less weeding and more sightseeing. ---Event Coordinator: Shannon Kow, Tiffany Ha.
Chino Wetlands: These will be a few times a month until the Wetlands Park is completed at the end of the school year. Activities include planting, shoveling, watering, and more. In the end, the area will be turned into a wilderness park with hiking trails and large ponds. Come and help! ---Event Coordinator: Josephine Chi
Nature Day (Saturday, Feb. 24, 11am-2pm): This event only comes around once in a while. This park cleanup, potluck, and crayfishing event will be held at Lemon Creek Park. Yes, we are fishing! This is a sort-of end of the semester party for those of you who are still in the club. --Event Coordinator: All officers
Beach Cleanup: These are rare, but usually involve more than beach cleaning---shopping anyone? Keep our beaches beautiful (if not swimmable) and have fun too. ---Event Coordinator: Sara Wang, Anna Karina Severt.
ROOTS Restoration Willow Planting (Saturday, Oct. 28, 9am -12pm): Help out Upper Newport Bay volunteers by planting willow tree saplings. All tools provided and on the spot training. Be sure to wear long pants and comfortable shoes, even bring some sort of sun protection. ---Event Coordinator: Shannon Kow, Tiffany Ha.

Bottle Recycling: ECGA is installing bins for bottle and can recycling in the E and J buildings. Please help reuse some of the plastic that is thrown away each year from bottles. The money earned goes back into this program, helping to buy more bins for more classrooms. So look for the gray ECGA bottle recycling bins!
PGE-Project Green Earth: This is the schoolwide recycling program of paper and plastic bottles, run by the alliance of ECGA, Evergreen, and Leo Club.
Snuggles: Dogs and cats usually live in metal pens at animal shelters. So to keep them cozy and warm, volunteers help sew comforters, distributing them to the local shelters ECGA works with. We will be using old ECGA T-shirts as fabric. Each member receives a T-shirt, getting the opportunity to personalize it before transforming it into a comforter and donating it.
