FREE Thank the Earth Day Event - 4.11.19

Time: 4:00 PM

Location: NIU West Lagoon

Join fellow Earth-lovers outside to celebrate Earth Day on Monday, April 22nd.  Volunteer opportunities include weeding and planting native plants in NIU's Native Plant Garden located between Grant Towers and Stevenson Towers along North Stevenson Drive. The raised beds are located across the road from the West Lagoon where we will also be removing trash in Eco Woods and around the lagoon. We will also remove trash from the pond in front of the Outdoor Rec Sports Complex.  Afterwards enjoy a casual party with healthy treats celebrating our wonderful planet. Visit the Facebook event.
