September 2017 Events


  • “Meatless Mondays” – join us in the “Meatless Mondays” challenge. Eating less meat reduces demand, greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, and our carbon footprint, all from changing one simple meal choice. All dining halls offer meatless options, too, so it is super easy.

  • Water Festival –  9/21/17
    We are excited to participate in this yearly event hosted by Marshall University College of Science. West Virginia celebrates the importance of water with daylong water festivals for 4th and 5th graders. The events are part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the critical need for water education. Water festivals include interactive learning stations and exhibits where students engage in curriculum-based, hands-on water activities. We gave tours of the Butter gardens, the Monarch Waystation and the Green Roof.
    Organizations that collaborate with the DEP to provide this fun and educational opportunity include the National Park Service, Army Corps of Engineers, and local watershed organizations.
