Eco-Tip of the Day: Participate in tomorrow's Earth Day activities!

Tomorrow is Earth Day, and there are a lot of things going on on campus. The events start at 11 am on the Hasty Lawn with the Earth Day Fair. Representatives from several companies will be on hand to share information about energy conservation, water conservation, sustainable farming and recycling. From 11 to 1 our favorite horticulturalist Zach White will be selling plants from the Reinhardt greenhouse: vegetables, flowers and hanging baskets. There will be a plant raffle announced at 12:30 and at 1:30.

(If you want to get an earlier start on your plant shopping, the Tri Beta Biology Honorary Society will be selling tomato plants and geraniums at the picnic table next to the Dobbs Building from 11 to 1 today).

Traditionally on Earth Day a tree is planted every year on the Reinhardt campus. This year's tree is very special: a Golden Weeping Willow tree in memory of maintenance supervisor Tommy McBurnett. Members of the McBurnett family will be on hand to witness the planting. The ceremony will begin at 2:30 in front of Roberts Hall.

Please plan to attend these events and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Especially since finals are coming up. This may be the last time you see the sun for about a week!
