We will drive out to the Jamestown settlement parking lot and ride back to campus via Powhatan Creek Trail to look for birds. The ride will be very casual and we will be stopping frequently to bird-watch. Must wear a helmet. If you need a bike and/or helmet, please contact Bill Horatio [[w|wxhora]] by noon on Thursday (4/13). Bike rentals are free. Helmets are available for purchase for $15. 

W&M Wasteless Week Challenge 2017

Americans throw away enough plastic bottles each year to circle the earth four times. William & Mary produced 1185 TONS of trash in 2015 (equal to 160 full grown elephants). For a week, you commit to throwing away less or going completely waste-free. We end the week with a potluck dinner on April 28. We use the facebook page as a photo/video journal for people to post questions, advice and fun tricks to be waste-free. Interested in the challenge? Email wmgreendining@gmail.com to sign up and receive a wasteless pin.
