Earth Day 2010 at Smith

Morrow residents recently pitched in to keep Paradise beautiful

Residents of Morrow House teamed up to clean refuse off the banks of Paradise Pond last week in an effort to beautify the pride of the Smith campus (see pictures below). The students' effort appropriately foreshadowed the annual Earth Day, an international event that promotes appreciation for and awareness of our planet's environmental health.

Earth Day is this Thursday, April 22. Smith joins in every year with own its daylong lineup of activities.

This year, check Chapin Lawn from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for campus representatives from building services, the Center for the Environment, Ecological Design, and Sustainability (CEEDS), SGA, dining services, Bike Kitchen, Smith Community Garden, the college's Sustainability Committee and Green Team, who will offer information about what you can do to help improve the environment. Watch demonstrations of bicycle-powered generators, a solar cooker, and more. Also, meet the women of Morrow House who helped beautify Paradise.

It's all about Earth.
