Forty-six years ago, the first Earth Day celebration began. On that day at OSU, students put together a series of events, participating in this landmark date. While Earth Day-related festivities have not occurred every year since, our annual celebration has been going strong for what will be the 16th consecutive year this year!
Beyond Earth Day is a 2-week celebration (April 22-May 5, 2017) with fun and educational events focused on various holistic sustainability issues, put on by groups from both the campus and greater Corvallis community. Please see a full line-up of events on the Beyond Earth Day website: http://tiny.cc/earth-calendar.
The primary organizers and sponsors of Beyond Earth Day are Campus Recycling, the Student Sustainability Initiative and the Sustainability Office. Participating groups for 2016 include OSU student groups and departments, local nonprofits, and government agencies.
Stay tuned for more blog posts and RSVP for the Beyond Earth Day on Facebook for more details. Or hop on over to the Beyond Earth Day website now! There is still time to register for a booth at the community fair! Registration is due this Friday, April 14th.
