The Richview Environment Club revived Richview's inner courtyard, which was completely overgrown, and transformed it into a thriving eco-system where Richview students can sit and enjoy nature. The Environment Club also has funded other groups in the school; in 2009-2010 they raised $462.00, half of which went to help purchase plants to decorate the outside of the school, and the other half to help purchase a tree that was dedicated to a Richview teacher. The Richview Environment Club in 2009-2010 participated in a park clean up, and worked with St. George golf course to teach grades 4 to 6 about eco-systems and the importance of environmental sustainability.
