A brief description of the student group:

GECO (Gettysburg Environmental Concerns Organization) is the environmental club on campus, an entirely student-run organization that has existed on campus for over 20 years. Members are students who care deeply about environmental issues and want to make a positive impact on the environment and their community. They are involved in advocacy campaigns, campus sustainability projects, and ecological restoration activities. They frequently collaborate with other student organizations to put on education and social events on campus, such as film festivals and speaker series, and have organized various trips off campus from camping in nearby state parks to national student conferences like PowerShift in Washington, DC.
