Earth Day 2015

Earth Day Celebration 2015

April 23rd, 2015

10am - 2pm

UC Merced's 4th annual Earth Day!



Last years' event had a great student turnout and over 25 booths!  We had some first timers and some old favorites.

We had three crafting tables - they were a huge hit!  Students planted succulents in wine corks, potted herbs for Arbor Day, and made coasters from used CDs.

The Yosemite Leadership Program organized to clean up trash around campus during the event.

Art Competition

Last year, we celebrated sustainability with the Recycled Art Competition!

The winner of the Recycled Art Competition 2015 is Daryn Smith with "Love the Earth, Love Recycling!"

Farmer's Market

This year we are really ramping up the scale! In addition to our usual event on Scholars Lane, we will have a Farmer's Market, food waste awareness, and live sorting!
