Volunteer with KU Sustainability

The Center for Sustainability facilitates three main volunteer programs:

Prairie Acre Restoration Project - Help restore, expand, and maintain this historic tract of untilled land behind Blake Hall. 

Rock Chalk Recycle - Help us educate the public about how to recycle and compost at KU Football and Basketball games. Enjoy the energy of a game as we divert tons of concession waste from the landfill!

Replant Mt. Oread - Volunteer to plant trees and other beneficial landscaping at this annual campus event.

The Student Rain Garden - Learn about native plants and ecosystems while helping to maintain this student inspired project at Ambler Recreation Center.


Yes, please! Send me information about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
