Easter break is this weekend, which means lots of family time, Easter eggs, and overeating. After all the excess, it will be time to get back to basics and celebrate Earth Week! This year, Earth Day is Monday, April 22. While we won’t be able to celebrate Earth Day as a campus, there will be plenty of activities throughout Earth Week to get back in touch with your granola side.
Tuesday, April 23 at 4pm, Pause for Prayer: Care for the Earth in Healy Chapel. Celebrate God’s creation with the Mercy Center!
On Wednesday, April 24 at 6pm in the Auditorium, the CH245 Environmental Chemistry class, in conjunction with the Natural Resources Council of Maine, Lakes Environmental Association, Bridgton Books and the Green Store are hosting a screening of Bag It! The class will present results from a study of microplastics in the Presumpscot River. There will be door prizes!
Join the Ecoreps for Craft Night and Adopt a Plant on Wednesday, April 24 at 8pm in the Heff! You can bring your own container to decorate, or the Eco-reps will provide one for you. Containers can include old mugs, glass jars, old candle holders, whatever you want!
And to cap off the week, everyone’s favorite festival will be Thursday, April 25 from 11am-2pm! Come play a game of corn-hole with the Health & Wellness Club, get a re-usable straw from the Eco-reps, sample Urban Farm & Fermentory kombucha, and so much more at the Sustainability Festival!
