Happy Earth Day! To celebrate the 43rd year of the founding of this holiday, here are events going on around West Michigan this week:
- West Michigan Environmental Council has a list of events going on all month.
- Grand Rapids Public Library has a series of events all week, starting April 22.
- The Rapidian and GRNow have listing of events happening all over the city during the week.
- The Nature Conservancy is campaigning for people to picnic for the Earth on Earth Day.
- The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting a Google+ hangout at 3PM EST today to answer questions about energy and home efficiency.
In addition to events, you can also find information at the library on sustainability, green technology, ecology, and environmental protection. You can also check out this post I wrote a few years ago on the renewable energy and green careers display we had in the library in 2011, which includes loads of links to resources and books.
If you have any questions about accessing the materials off-campus, please email a librarian and we’ll return your email within a business day. Or if you’d like immediate assistance, give us a call instead!
