Earth Week Celebrated at the Colleges

Campus Greens at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is sponsoring a variety of events April 15 through 22 to celebrate Earth Week.

April 15, 2002 GENEVA, N.Y.—Dinner, a movie, a swim in Seneca Lake, highway cleanup, and a coffeehouse are all part of the events organized by Campus Greens to celebrate Earth Week April 15 through 22 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

Earth Week kicks off with an invitation to “Take the Green Ribbon Pledge.” Those who take the pledge promise to be an environmentally conscious participant in the world. Campus Greens and the residents of the Farm Theme House will prepare and enjoy a vegetarian/vegan dinner at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, at Farm House. The dinner will be followed by a screening of a funky silent film titled Baraka, at 7 p.m. in Demarest Hall Room 14. Campus Greens and interested students will tour and volunteer at Rose Valley Organic Farm on Saturday, April 20.

The Hobart Club and the William Smith Chapter of Rochester will join members of Campus Greens to clean the patch of highway 390 from the Thruway to Highland Drive on Sunday, April 21. Afterward, participants will join in a Seneca Lake swim to welcome the spring and celebrate the natural world. Earth Week activities will culminate in a coffeehouse and poetry reading at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 22, in the Cellar Pub.

Campus Greens is an environmentally friendly organization dedicated to the beautification of the campus and surrounding area. The group promotes recycling and proper trash disposal.
