Students, Trees, & Bees: Earth Day and the American Campus (Thursdays with the Starr Center)

Thursday 22 April
05:00 PM - 06:00 PM

The first Earth Day in 1970 was conceived as an “environmental teach-in” for college campuses across the United States. Fifty-one years later, the environmental movement has gained traction, particularly among younger generations, while the world faces climate crisis and mass extinctions.

We will explore the legacy of Earth Day here at Washington College through the stories of the campus arboretum, which offers clues to where have we been, where are we now, and where are we heading. 

This event is co-hosted by Washington College’s Center for Environment and Society and co-sponsored by the Eastern Shore Food Lab.
