UNC Charlotte will be celebrating the 22nd Annual Earth Day with a festival set for April 16, 10:30 AM - 2:00 PM, on the plaza between the College of Education and the College of Health and Human Services.
During the event, participants will be able to meet a variety of organizations that work on environmental issues to learn how you can make a positive impact. Expected vendors include Central Carolina Fuels Coalition, Carolina Raptor Center, Earth Farms, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, Charlotte Area Transportation System, and UNC Charlotte Earth Club.
"We have lots of events throughout the year, but none are bigger than the Earth Day festival. This is a long standing tradition and we hope that everybody will take time to visit with our vendors and celebrate our planet" said Devin Hatley, Environmental Educator.
