About Our Chapter

Welcome to the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG) Central North Regional Chapter. ESRAG welcomes Rotarians and non-Rotarians to join and take actions to sustain our environment and stabilize our climate.

Our action model:

Identify environmental leaders within the Rotary world, assist them in initiating environmental service projects that are meaningful to THEM, help where we can, and acknowledge and publicize their awesome work.

Did you know that RAG membership is “open to Rotarians, their family members as well as participants and alumni of all Rotary and Foundation programs?” Please join if you are not yet a member and invite your Rotary colleagues, too!

We look forward to collaborating with you to bring Rotary’s ‘Service Above Self’ ethic to solving environmental problems.
