Eremurus Environmentalist Club is an independent youth organization that was established in 1982. The group's activities are primarily focused in environmental education and protection efforts. Eremurus operates a Sunday school and annual summer camp that educate children about the natural world and the ecological movement. It organizes activities for children including cleaning up national parks and planting endangered plants. Additionally, the club sponsors workshops for teachers on environmental education techniques and curricula. Eremurus publishes a bulletin, "Archa," for children.
Eremurus has produced several short films on ecological themes, including "Protection of Biodiversity in the Western Tian-Shan," which won a state competition for independent films and "The Causes of Desertification in the Western Tian-Shan."
