Happy Earth Day!

Today we celebrated Earth Day with a bunch of cool activities. There was live music, a drum circle, a farmers market, drawings for prizes, and a sustainable meal!

The farmers market involved some pretty awesome arts and crafts, and a lot of locally produced goods to be purchased. Students won really cool prizes, and the live music was pretty awesome!

The day is not over yet! Tonight at the American Indian Resource center at 5:30 there is a presentation on Local Water Quality Issues. There will be lots of information on Lake Bemidji, as well as other water sources in the state and around the area. It should be lots of fun!

Also, there are a lot of cool events happening later this week.

Tomorrow will bring a Geocaching adventure!From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a GPS check out and bike rental available at Lakeside. There will also be a Grease Waste Presentation at the AIRC followed by North Country Trail Presentation.

Thursday at 5:30 p.m. there will be a Traditional Skills Workshop on Safe Water Treatment. Sign up for this in The Sustainability Office! There will also be a documentary once again at 7:30 p.m. in Bensen 115!

Friday is the Lake Shore Clean Up at 3. Sign up is also in The Sustainability Office and the group will meet in the Bangsberg parking lot. There will also be a Beach Party: HMU After Hours at 9 p.m. in Memorial 100.

Earth Month Has Arrived


Published in 2014

Hey Friends!

Earth Month is upon us, and there is a lot going on!

We started this month-long celebration with a documentary last Thursday and The Undie Run yesterday. Both went very well, but this is just the beginning. Today many from the office are presenting at the Student Achievement Day! There is opportunity to learn about what the green fee goes to, and also what projects are currently taking place at BSU.

Also, at every Earth Month event you will have the opportunity to put your name in to win a bike. A brand new, amazing bike!

Basically, there is a lot of super awesome stuff happening. The Sustainability Office will be updating  a lot to keep you in the loop, so be a part of the awesome events and support the Earth!
