Earth Day Activities Planned at Weber State

OGDEN, Utah – Members of Weber State University’s Environmental Club have several activities planned as part of an Earth Day Celebration on April 23.

Activities will take place on and around the WSU campus in an effort to promote environmentally friendly habits.

At 8:50 a.m., and again at 9:50 a.m., the WSU Environmental Club will host “dumpster diving.” The activity, which will take place at the Stewart Bell Tower, will identify common items that are thrown in the trash that actually could be recycled.

At 11 a.m. there will be a tree planting ceremony east of the Stewart Library with Ogden Mayor Matthew Godfrey and other community and environmental leaders. The WSU Environmental Club hopes to make tree planting a new tradition at WSU.

From 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. there will be a cleanup along Skyline Drive and Country Hills Drive. The cleanup is meant to keep the roads and side roads free of items that could harm plants and animals. The WSU Environmental Club recently adopted the roads as part of its environmental efforts.

From 5-6 p.m. there will be a show entitled “Cosmic Journey” at the Ott Planetarium. The film will discuss how the Earth, as small as it is, plays a significant part in its vast universe. Seating is limited.
