What’s Happening This Week (April 26-30)?
Whether it was a guided tour through Ashley Schiff Preserve, sustainable food demonstrations, environmental booths on the academic mall or the return of the much-awaited annual rubber duck race, last week’s EarthStock was chock-full of fun and educational opportunities. We hope you were able to take part. We’ll be sharing a slideshow and videos of all the happenings soon.
