Jan. 31 | Team up with Active Minds
Active Minds is a national organization that develops and supports student-run mental health awareness, education, and advocacy groups on college campuses.

By planning campus-wide events that promote awareness and education, the UC Berkeley Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and create a comfortable environment for open discussion of mental health issues. Some of our past events include: Mind and Body Awareness Week, Stress Free Day, and Suicide Awareness Week.

We will be having our First General Meeting on Tuesday, January 31, from 8-9PM at 186 Barrows Hall. For more information, visit our website: www.activeminds.berkeley.edu

Spring 2012 | Get involved with the Forestry Club
Do you like trees? The outdoors? Chili? Well if any one of these interests you, you should check out the Forestry Club!

The Forestry Club meets Wednesdays at noon in 103 Mulford. You can be a forestry major, minor, or know nothing about forestry all. Some events include: “Bean Feeds” that are dinners made with the Forestry Club's own chili, the Christmas Tree sale, the annual Yule Ball during the holidays, logging sports, and forest conservation and outreach. This year will be especially fun because it is our Centennial!

Spring 2012 | Volunteer at the Strawberry Creek Restoration Nursery
Strawberry Creek restoration project is a student and volunteer effort to connect the community to the natural areas on campus around Strawberry Creek, while managing invasive and native species in these natural areas. The SCRP nursery is our chance to grow locally native plants, sourced from neighboring riparian ecosystems, for reintroduction along the Strawberry Creek. The nursery program is also a great opportunity for students looking to learn more about the East Bay's native plant life, methods of propagation, revegetation in restoration, as well as the larger scope of california plant life.

Join Lawrence every Wednesday for open in hours between 10-12:30pm in the nursery where you can help with propagation, maintenance, light construction, propagule collection in Strawberry and Claremont Canyon, and assist with other nursery operations. Students of the Strawberry Creek Decal can earn credit towards service hours for working in the nursery.

When: Wednesdays from 10am till 12:30 pm (heavy rain cancels).
Where: SCRP Native Plant Nursery, in the courtyard between Wellman and Giannini
Contact: Nursery Coordinator, lawrencefernandez@berkeley.edu. RSVP is nice, but not required.
