Area residents and students can attend multiple events organized by The University of Scranton’s Sustainability Office to “celebrate earth day every day.” The events are free of charge and will be held throughout April on – or near – the University’s campus.

The artwork of University students, staff and faculty will be on display at the 9th Annual Environmental Art Show, which takes place from April 10 to April 24 in the Heritage Room of the Weinberg Memorial Library. The exhibit, which showcases the natural beauty of our environment and the ideal practice of living sustainably, can be seen during library hours.

The winners of the Earth Day Essay Contest will be announced at an Evening of Environmental Science, which will be held in the Atrium of the Loyola Science Center from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 11. The event will include interactive exhibits and activities for all ages, and a display of submissions from the Earth Day Essay Contest. Arbor Day trees will also be available free of charge while supplies last.

Research projects from students and faculty will be on display at the Earth Day Fair on Tuesday, April 16, that will highlight sustainable practices. Local businesses will also participate in the interactive event that runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Atrium of the Loyola Science Center.

An information tent and activities will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at the DeNaples Center Patio to raise awareness and highlight the importance of Earth Day.

Lastly, the Weinberg Memorial Library’s annual Book, Plant and Tag Sale will take place on Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 28, from noon until 4 p.m. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library Endowment, which supports library collections and services.
