MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- UW-Stout students are taking part in Earth Day activities.
The events have been going on all week.
Thursday, Greensense and the Sustainability Office at the university held an Earth Day fair outside the Memorial Student Center.
Campus organizations had plants for sale and encouraged students to sign a clean energy petition called Seize the Grid.
The office said the effort is aimed at getting the word out about sustainability.
“The importance is to show the students that we've got a lot going on when it comes to sustainability and there are a lot of different options for them to be able to get involved. It doesn't have to be 100-percent involvement, it can just be when they have time,” said Dani Laine with UW-Stout.
Friday, the community is invited to take the Earth Day pledge from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the lower level of the student center.
Other Earth Day activities Friday include:
Yoga on the lawn south of the student center, 11 a.m. to noon, sponsored by University Recreation
Greenhouse tours and Propagate a Plant, 1 to 2 p.m., Jarvis Hall Science Wing, sponsored by Greensense
Challenge Course open house, noon to 2 p.m., sponsored by Stout Adventures
Free climbing on the indoor rock-climbing walls, 2 to 9 p.m., sponsored by Stout Adventures
