Marshall University Sustainability Department Hosts Earth Day Fair

The Marshall University Sustainability Department will host an Earth Day Fair, an event dedicated to promoting environmental consciousness, fostering community engagement, and celebrating planet Earth.

Everyone is invited to join the Marshall community from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Wednesday, April 10, at the Memorial Student Center Plaza and Buskirk Field for a day filled with educational workshops and other activities, and opportunities to make connections.

The following are a few of the opportunities on campus.

  • Forty student and advocacy groups will set up booths to share their passion for sustainability. Those who stop by can engage in conversations, learn about eco-friendly initiatives and discover ways to make a difference.
  • Groups will host interactive workshops covering topics such as recycling, energy conservation and sustainable living.
  • Organizations will have giveaways and raffles. Students and members of the public can grab some eco-conscious swag and enter raffles for a chance to win sustainable goodies.
  • An EV car show and ride-along opportunity will be part of the event. Participants can experience the future of transportation by checking out electric vehicles up close and even taking a ride.
  • A wildlife rehab exhibit will offer a chance to learn about local wildlife conservation efforts.

All Earth Week activities are free and open to the public. Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to join in celebrating a shared commitment to a greener, healthier world.

The Marshall University Sustainability Department is dedicated to advancing sustainable practices on campus and beyond. Through education, outreach and collaboration, the department strives to create a more resilient and environmentally conscious community.
