Yes! The snow has subsided and the sun is shining and the weather is gently warming. It’s that time of year to celebrate EARTH Month by getting your hands in the dirt so that you can grow that green thumb or at the very least watch a movie or recycle. There are a lot of opportunities to celebrate from volunteer service days and work days to movies, meeting, festivals and recycling events. So take your pick.
Below is a compilation of some of the opportunities to engage in both on campus and in the broader community. Happy Earth Month!!!!
