The Campus Sustainability Committee has worked on multiple initiatives over the past three years. Each member of the committee is involved in various initaitives and reports on those initiatives at monthly meetings. Ongoing initaitives include:

(Responsible Committee Member: Dr. Christy Walkuski. Additional Committee Members Involved: Dr. Franklin Lebo, Ms. Clare Helmer.)

This initiative was necessary to find and confirm the suitability of a new site for the student tended natural gardens on campus due to displacement by the construction of a new math and computer science building. (Committee Member Involved: Dr. Jill Stephens Fleisher, Co-Director, Sustainability.)

(3) An ongoing project is for Baldwin Wallace to joing the Greater Cleveland Bee Keeping Association by hosting active beehives on campus. To this end, the location at the BW Gardens for the hives has been identified and the hive secured. (Responsible Committee Member: Mr. Robin Gagnow.)
