Earth_Day_Poster_2014

The University of Memphis TIGUrS (Tigers Initiative for Gardening in Urban Settings) will be hosting the 5th annual annual Earth Day celebration at the University of Memphis on Thursday April 17th from 10am-4pm in the Oasis garden adjacent to the Zach Curlin parking garage.
This year’s festivities highlight animal conservation with speakers from the Memphis Zoo, several information booths on local conservation efforts, a butterfly release, and a 100 foot mural featuring endangered species painted by a local artist! We will also still have our Earth Day traditions, such as exercise in the garden: yoga, zumba, and tai chi; live music; plenty of eco-friendly and local vendors, and fun for all ages!
TIGUrS aims to educate our entire community about healthy food, sustainable gardening practices, and the preservation of our environment right here in Memphis. Everyone is always welcome in the TIGUrS gardens and at TIGUrS events- so bring your family and celebrate Earth Day with us!
