Rider’s 2011 Earth Day celebration

Students and faculty congregated on Cranberry’s patio to celebrate Earth Day on Wednesday. They enjoyed music, games and eco-friendly giveaways. Activities included Earth Day-themed miniature golf, a quiz wheel and a human-powered sit and spin ride. Representatives from Alteris Renewables (Solar), Waste Management and Quench were available to discuss sustainability practices.  Later in the day, a showing of Your Environmental Road Trip (YERT) was presented.  Mark Dixon, the founder of YERT shared his experiences in a meet-and-greet session. The event was sponsored by Rider’s Office of Sustainability. See p. 6 for a review of the film and Dixon’s presentation.
