Eco Club and Green Practices
Eco club was started in June 2021. The main function of the club seeks to promote environmental awareness at the grassroot level by creating and nurturing green consciousness among the students. It functions to inspire them about how to save the nature and natural resources. To achieve these goals, Eco club regularly organizes different functions, seminars, workshop, rallies and competitions.
The main objectives of the club are-
- To motivate the students to keep their surroundings green and clean by undertaking plantation of trees.
- To sensitize the students to minimize the use of plastic bags, not to throw them in public places as they choke drains and sewers, and cause water logging.
- To motivate the students to imbibe habits and follow a life style with minimum waste generation, source separation of waste and disposing the waste to the nearest storage point.
- To organize rallies, marches, human chains with a view to spreading environmental awareness
In the campus, there is a composting unit where the green waste of the college converts down to manure which is used as enrichment for plant nutrition. It further attracts beneficial organisms to the soil and reduces the need for pesticides and fertilizers.
SCD Govt college is very rich in terms of flora. In the campus there are more than 2000 trees and many plants which give the campus a comforting appearance. As plants are the base and necessity of the life, the focus is on maintaining and increasing the green belt. Some rare, medicinal and ornamental plants make the campus a site of attraction for the visitors. The strength, long lifespan and regal stature of trees give them a monument like quality. They also remind us the glorious history of our institution in particular. A thick belt of large shady trees in the periphery of the college have found to be bringing down noise and cutting down dust and storms. Thus, the college has been playing a significant role in maintaining the environment in campus and in its surrounding areas.
Butea monosperma (Plash), Erythrina vearigata (Gadha Plash), Mimospus elengii (Molusari), Madhuca longifolia (Mahua), Teminalia arjna (Arjun), Teminalia chebula (Harad), Terminalia ballarica (Harad), Mallotus phillipensis (Kamala), Triveni (Pipal, Banyan and neem) and many more are the part of the green belt which glorify the view of college towards the value of environment.
A botanical garden “Gulistan-a-Sahir” serves for the conservation of rare and endangered species. There is a separate herb garden, hydrophyts section also. This garden attracts a large number of visitors, particularly school students for observing plant diversity.
