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