Penn State Goes Green

While some Penn State students may choose to spend their April 20th doing activities that might not exactly be school-sanctioned, Earth Day activities will be celebrated all over campus today. A number of campus organizations are hosting myriad sustainably minded activities for students to attend.

Eco-Action will be taking over Old Main lawn from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Activities include tie-dying, flower planting, and slacklining. From 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., they will host free Yoga sessions. At 3:30 p.m., they’ll have an environmentally friendly fashion show.

The Center for Sustainability will be having tours of its solar-powered home, a wind turbine, the community gardens, and the Ecological Systems lab. At 9:00 a.m., they will have an hour-long bird walk of the Sustainability Experience Center. From Noon to 3:00 p.m., garden and tech tours will be held, and at 4:00 p.m., the Center will host a memorial ceremony for Dr. Wangari Maatai, a Kenyan environmental activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Penn State will also host tours of its recycling facilities several times throughout the day. Register online to reserve your spot, or check out the full list of events .

As our world is waking up to the concept of sustainability, take time to celebrate on Earth Day!
