The Frostburg State University Sierra Student Coalition is planning an Earth Day Celebration for the weekend of April 21-23.
The Earth Day events will kick off Friday, April 21, at 3 p.m. with a city clean-up project lead by the Sierra Student Coalition, United Campus Ministries and the city of Frostburg. Volunteers for the city clean-up are asked to meet in front of Old Main on College Avenue no later than 3 p.m.
On Saturday, April 22, the events will be held in the upper quad of the FSU campus and will include informational and vending tables, live animals, keynote speakers, a presentation by the Heifer Foundation, various carnival-style games and live acoustic music. Funds raised by these events will go, in part, toward placing a dumpster dedicated to recyclable materials in the Lane University Center.
Later in the evening, the University Programming Council will help host a Battle of the Bands in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall. The concert will feature local musicians and will begin at 7 p.m.
Earth Day Celebrations will close on Sunday, April 23, with the campus arboretum clean-up.
Other sponsors of the events include the University Programming Council, Student Government Association, United Campus Ministries, the Wildlife Society, the Society for Conservation Biology and the Student Center for Volunteerism.
