April 24, 2014

Are you feeling bummed by the amount of waste being thrown away every day? Get inspired by environmental artist Victor Castro’s transformation of waste into art, as he leads a workshop tomorrow (Friday) from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Science Center atrium.

Saturday’s events:
Join the Welty Environmental Center, Visit Beloit, Friends of Riverfront and City of Beloit Leisure Services as they celebrate Earth Day along the Rock River in Riverside Park. Area organizations and businesses will be there to highlight what they are doing to conserve, recycle, and celebrate local natural resources. There will be activities for the kids, information on events and services, and great ways to get out and enjoy the natural world. It has been a long winter and the event will kick off spring in a big way! At 10 a.m. the Wood Family pedestrian bridge crossing the Rock River will be officially dedicated.  At 11 a.m. check out an interactive public art installation for the tall and the small. Enjoy a walk along the recreation path, and even pick up a tasty treat for lunch.

Sunday’s events:
Have you noticed beer bottles and candy wrappers littering campus and wish someone would do something about the litterbugs? Well you can join a whole group of students who are committing to clean up campus together. Join in on the campus-wide clean up led by Sigma Chi.
