MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — This year’s Earth Day, Friday, April 22, is a big deal on the SUNY Morrisville Campus.
Community service projects and various activities are planned throughout the day — a new campus tradition which encourages students to celebrate Earth Day, sustainability and protecting the environment.
The celebration, which is open to the community, kicks off with an Applied Learning Conference, where students showcase undergraduate research projects and activities that integrate applied learning and sustainability. Highlights include a presentation by Andrew Lunetta, founder of A Tiny Home for Good, an organization which builds shelters for unhoused individuals.
The college’s variety of activities includes food and clothing drives, vegetarian and vegan cooking demonstrations, building a bird or bat house, making something tie-dye with natural products, planting a tree and learning about native plants.
A campus picnic, musical entertainment, food tastings by Nelson Farms and the campus bookstore’s annual sidewalk sale are also taking place. Students can also register for fall 2022 classes, where they can get swag and food.
