Three-Legged Frog, a club with a rich history on Minneapolis College’s campus, is seeking to bring a renewed focus on the environment, current environmental issues and ways to take action, both locally and globally, to spark meaningful change. 

“We do our best to look at how we fit in with the world around us,” said Abbigale Helke, current Three-Legged Frog Club President. “We talk about different things going on and we plan events for the community that are important to us as well, so we can learn and grow.”

In partnership with the Minneapolis College Sustainability Committee, Three-Legged Frog is excited to announce the second interview in the Community Pollinators speaker series on Friday, March 5 at 1 p.m. This speaker series focuses on the confluence of racial justice and environmental justice, and seeks to amplify the voices of community leaders who “pollinate” our communities through education and application of sustainable practices.

The interview will feature Sam Grant, a former faculty member. Grant is the executive director of MN350, a Minnesota-based climate justice organization that seeks to unite Minnesotans as part of a global movement to end the pollution damaging our climate, speed the transition to clean energy and create a just and healthy future for all. 

“I am looking forward to how Sam Grant looks at the intersectionality of things,” said Helke. “It’s not just about climate change, it's about the people as well.”

Helke is excited about what is on the horizon for the club. They are busy planning for their Sustainability Month, which they will be coordinating throughout the month of April. Events will include a presentation from The Raptor Center, learning about forest bathing, a talk on personal consumption and a talk about growing food in city environments.
