Green DuBois is a team of volunteers who support DuBois Center through
environmental educational activities and ecological projects.

Green DuBois is built on three branches from the same tree:

1. The Flowering branch – coming see what we have
2. The Woody branch – taking care of what we’ve got
3. The Leafy branch – expanding our ecological sustainability
