Earth Day Fair tomorrow will kick off SOU’s Earth Week

Are you into smoothie bikes, acoustic music, or participating in an interactive eco-art project?

If yes, be sure to stop by the courtyard of Southern Oregon University’s Stevenson Union tomorrow between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the Earth Day Fair, an event put on by SOU’s Ecology Center of the Siskiyous to celebrate sustainability and highlight SOU’s green efforts.

The fair will feature a pedal-powered smoothie machine, a Native American drum ceremony, acoustic music, a presentation from SOU President Mary Cullinan about SOU’s sustainability efforts at 12:45 p.m., a workshop about bees with the “Bee Girl” Sarah Red-Laird at 1 p.m., an interactive art project, and information booths from groups all over the Rogue Valley. All events will take place in the SU courtyard.
