Queen's greens up its act for Earth Day
A campus clean-up event yesterday brought people together to celebrate Earth Day.
The Queen's Sustainability Office with its partners, the Alma Mater Society, Society of Graduate and Professional Students, Sodexo, Waste Services Inc., and the Grounds department, organized a morning of campus community action and education.
Participants planted a tree in the arboretum dedicated to Earth Day 2009, picked up litter, planted flowers and learned about campus sustainability initiatives, while enjoying coffee and snacks with friends and colleagues.
