University of Memphis students, faculty, staff and the Memphis community are invited to celebrate the planet at the University of Memphis Earth Day event Thursday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The festivities will take place at the TIGUrS Urban Garden, which is located adjacent to the Elma Roane Field house. The rain location for the “zero waste” event will be the Michael D. Rose Theater lobby.
Those attending the Earth Day celebration will have the chance to browse information tables featuring sustainability initiatives from on-and off-campus organizations. They also can get an “up close and personal” view of the TIGUrS Garden and participate in the planting of summer crops. There will be Zumba demonstrations, a farmer’s market, live music from local artists and prize giveaways, including a bicycle and recycling bins. A butterfly release will take place at noon; anyone interested may release a butterfly. A free lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information about Earth Day, contact Karyl Buddington atkbudding@memphis.edu or 678-2359.
