SUNY Morrisville to celebrate Earth Day


MORRISVILLE — This year’s Earth Day on Friday, April 22, is a big deal on the SUNY Morrisville Campus.

Community service projects and various activities are planned throughout the day — a new campus tradition which gives students a break from classes to partake in acts of kindness that tie into sustainability and inspire them to protect the environment. 

The celebration, which is open to the community, kicks off with an Applied Learning Conference, where students showcase undergraduate research projects and activities that integrate applied learning and sustainability. Highlights include a presentation by Andrew Lunetta, founder of A Tiny Home for Good, an organization which builds shelters for unhoused individuals. 

Activities throughout the day include: food and clothing drives; campus cleanup; cooking demonstrations; building birdhouses and bat boxes; making something tie-dye with natural products; planting a tree; Be the Match bone marrow registry; and learning about native plants.  A campus picnic, musical entertainment, food tastings by Nelson Farms and the campus bookstore’s annual sidewalk sale are also taking place.
