The work of the Ecosystem Task Force is carried out by the various subcommittees. They are organized and lead by EcoTF members, but are made up of a variety of faculty, staff and students from across campus who are vital to accomplishing the subcommittees' goals. If you are interested in working on a particular project or area, please contact the appropriate subcommittee chair or email the Ecosystem Task Force!
