Earth Day Fair
Get ready for Earth Day at Mines!
Join the Mines Sustainability Committee, MAC, and EarthWorks this April for the first annual Mines Earth Day Fair! Events will be held around campus throughout the week of April 22nd to commemorate Earth Day and a more sustainable future for the whole Mines campus.
As Monday (4/22) is Earth Day, the bulk of events will be held on this day. But, there is a free plant giveaway on Friday, April 19th and an energy efficiency, energy storage, and renewable energy career networking event on Wednesday (4/24). So, look out for fun events throughout the week to get the most out of this year’s Earth Day Fair!
