Environmental Task Force (ETF) is the first student organization at UMBC that inspires students to take action on sustainability issues through service-based activities. We are an organization founded on the idea that service can create change. It was through the officers participation in the 2013 Alternative Spring Break (ASB) Environmental Trip that ETF began.
In that trip we:
- went to the Maryland House of Delegates in Annapolis to lobby with Clean Water Action Inc. on Environmental policies and issues such as hydraulic fracturing
- worked with Parks & People Foundation to clean up the Maryland Science Center at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor’s rooftop garden.
- visited the Back River Waste Treatment Plant to learn how wastewater can be recycled and reused.
- worked with AmeriCorps and Blue Water Baltimore to plant trees and place deer fences on a local golf course
