Earth Day posterEarth Day is an opportunity to educate ourselves about ways in which we can become more sustainable on campus and/or at home. There will be numerous events ranging from a farmers market to a row of food trucks, both featuring fresh, locally grown produce. Come out and support local farmers and business as well as discover ways to care for our Earth! In the Diamond Cafe, The Forum Newspaper will host the 3rd Earth Day Recycled Newspaper Fashion Show. If you haven’t seen this before, come and enjoy the amazing outfits our students make out of previous editions of UALR’s newspaper. The main event will be celebrated between the Ottenheimer Library and Student Union B on the UALR campus (RAIN OR SHINE), and other events will take place throughout Campus. Earth Day officially is celebrated in the U.S. on April 22.
