Thursday, April 18th 2019, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Atrium.

  • Hydroponics, aquaponics and regenerative agriculture – what does it all mean? Check out the demos with Eco-Entrepreneurship faculty in the Atrium, and get information on the new Eco-Entrepreneurship Program. Local sustainability-related community groups will host tables that offer insight into employment potential with this exciting new degree.
  • The new LSC farm site needs a name. Give us your best idea for a chance to win a prize.
  • Make and take your own potted seeds and seedlings.
  • Toward zero waste at home: Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) will demonstrate two home composting strategies. Take a free compost collection bin and compostable bags home with you to get started!
  • Whole food snacks, including ants on a log, homemade hummus, trail mix and refreshments.
  • Take a hike! Weather permitting, a trail guide will be on hand to offer Miller Creek Interpretive Trail tours. Meet at the Atrium doors at noon.
  • Campus Clean-up: pick up supplies at the Circle Drive entrance any time during the event.
  • Community and club info tables: get the scoop on local trails, local food programs, community sustainability efforts, volunteer opportunities, LSC teams and clubs!
  • Check out the Erickson Library’s Earth-Day themed pop-up and the library’s Eco Exhibit “Fix-a-Leak” from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, a display focused on water conservation at home.
  • Our labs extend beyond the building’s walls, and we use our campus as a teaching and learning tool in many ways. Civil Technology’s survey sites, pollinator gardens, the Miller Creek Interpretive Trail and the new farm site – these are living labs! Starting in fall 2019, you will have an opportunity to shape these living labs with our new free Distinction in Sustainability cohort. Talk to the cohort mentors about this hands-on experience, which includes identification and removal of invasive plant species on campus and across Duluth!
