Oakland University will commemorate the 39th year of Earth Day with an observance and forum event from 3-5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22 in the Oakland Center Gold Rooms.
The event boasts a proclamation by Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, various networking opportunities, a documentary film viewing and short presentations.
The aim is to bring together communities of local government, non-profit organizations and the general public to ponder a new lawn ethic, recognize green initiatives at both Oakland University and Oakland County and participate in a Connections Café community networking and discussion forum, according to Jill Hollowell, of the Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center.
This forum brings the highlights of the outdoor April 18-19 Earth Day Expo in downtown Rochester right back to OU’s campus, with a special focus on new lawn care ethics in the community.
Lois Robbins, local author of “Lawn Wars: A Struggle for a New Lawn Ethic,” will speak about green alternatives to the dangers of pesticides and introduce the film, “Gimme Green.”
This event is free and open to the general public. For more information, contact Jill Hollowell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
