Newest Event Updates

After holding a meeting on Monday the 7th with several UWB and CCC administrators and staff, Melissa and I came away with some pretty solid developments. We are still attempting to work out a deal to rent Mobius Hall for the speakers between 11am and 5pm. A tentative list of speakers includes: Denis Hayes (or someone from the Bullitt Foundation), Estella Leopold, myself, and Chancellor Chan. Perhaps we could have a faculty member as well. We would like faculty involvement with this project. As of right now we have none.

We have quite a list of local community and environmental organizations that are being invited to set up tables/booths. Most of these will be set up on the "book" courtyard next to the library. There will also be a booth containing information on the history and importance of Earth Day and a booth on alternative transportation that talks about what's going on at the campus. Some of them may be set up within Mobius Hall. Also possibly in Mobius Hall student organizations will have booths. We are working on having some kind of locally produced food available, as well as music performed by students between speakers.

Kids from surrounding K-12 schools may be attending the event. Possible activities include the recycling event, a wetland tour, and interacting with or viewing the goats.

On the UWB side of campus there will be goats, EV/Hybrid vehicles on display (11am - 4pm), the planting of the "W", and a recycling event. There will also be a seedling/worm giveaway. This will include signing a pledge to help the environment that will be put together to form an artistic display. It will also include some instructions on planting a tree and composting. On the UWB side there will also be a dashboard display, which will be explained in more detail at a later date.

We will continue to post updates as they develop. Be sure to check out the Sub-Committee page to figure out what we need help with. Please feel free to contact either myself (Maximilian Dixon) or Melissa Clark if you have any questions, ideas, concerns and or want to VOLUNTEER!! Thank you!
