SALT LAKE CITY – As colleges and universities throughout the country participate in environmental activities this week, Westminster College will host its annual Earth Day celebration on Wednesday, April 22 in the Tanner Plaza at 11 a.m.
“We are planning to feature green works happening on campus, including a variety of student projects from this semester and last,” said Kerry Case, director of the Environmental Center. “There will be food, music and vegetable starts for sale. The new twist we are adding this year is the announcement of the ‘Climate Change’ video contest winner at the event.”
Some of the green activities that will take place include: campaign for campus paper reduction, Chemical Club plant sale, introduction of the environmental studies major, community food co-op sign-up, reusable mug sale and continuing promotion of the free Westminster Wheels bike program. In addition to the internal activities, there will be a special presentation with local organic farmers and producers who will be bringing organic cheeses to taste.
