Want to get involved on campus and help protect our Earth? Recreational Sports, Dining Services, Facilities Management, Residence Life and SHSU Dining are joining together today to host Earth Day activities for students.
In the Lowman Student Center Mall Area these departments and organizations will be having different activities set up for students on how to be resourceful and protect our planet.
Starting at 10 a.m. today there will be a campus tree tour and Pot A Plant with Residence Life.
SH Dining facilities will be having an Aramark-Veg Out with Plant Forward educating students on meat based protein versus plant based protein. They will also showcase how to leave minimal waste when preparing and eating meals.
There will also be a No Hammock Hangout on campus starting from 4-6 p.m. in front of the RSC. Hammocks are known to cause damage to trees, so students are encouraged to come out for an afternoon of lawn games, frisbee, and meeting new people.
The departments hosting these events hope that they can make Sam Houston a more sustainable community. These events taking place are to help students be more aware of our Earth, and to be made more aware of the damage we cause and potential damage we could be doing.
The Earth Day activities today are a part of Earth Week, which is April 17-22 with activities like the Clothing Drive and Huntsville State Park cleanup.
Students are encouraged to participate in these events to make Sam Houston and our Earth a better place.
