students and staff are being
joined by 76 groups for Earth-
Day II. One of the most visi-
ble is the Ecology Center of
Ann Arbor. "We began, along
with 20 other ecology centers
that were established across
the nation, 20 years ago," says
Rebecca Kantor, Earth Day
and membership coordinator
for the center.
Only four of those centers
survive, but the Ann Arbor
center has "grown tremen-
dously," says Kantor. "We're
setting records for participa-
tion rates." With 2,000
members, a budget of more
than $1 million and a host of
programs, the center is even
beginning to have political
clout. On April 2, Ann Arbor
citizens will vote on a $28.2
million bond proposal that
would fund recycling and
landfill programs. The center
has been actively pushing for
the proposal.
The Ann Arbor Recycling
coalition says the city can
recover 35,000 tons of
recyclable material per year
and reduce the amount of gar-
bage sent to the city's landfill

The students on the steer-

reasons for getting directly
involved with ecological
issues. For Bettigole, it began
with a day spent in the White
Mountains of New Hamp-
shire. "We were hiking on Mt.

to the top it was a concrete

was this incredible beauty
