This fall event changes each year. It has been a summit, conference and environmental assembly, the possibilities are endless!
Earth Week takes place in April the week prior or the week of Earth Day. Campus activities are capped off with an Earth Day Festival that Saturday! This group tracks and advertises campus Earth Week events and plans the final Earth Day Festival. The planning of this event starts in the fall and provides the opportunity for collaboration with many student, faculty, and staff, as well as community members.
Earth Week will soon be recruiting for volunteers in the spring 2020 semester.
