The northern Nevada community can celebrate and learn about the earth at the University of Nevada, Reno campus Tuesday, April 17 through Friday, April 20. Educational programs and demonstrations will focus on sustainability efforts and examples of green campus and community resources.
"This is a great way to open our campus and provide our community the opportunity to see and learn about some of our great green projects," said Glenn Miller, professor of natural resources and environmental science at the University.
The University's Earth Week events will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gateway Plaza in front of the Joe Crowley Student Union each of the first three days, with a similarly themed film playing each of those days at 6 p.m. in the Student Union. Friday's GREENevada Student Sustainability Summit is in the Davidson Mathematics and Sciences Center.
