USD Honors Earth Day
“We have a strong water theme for Earth Days this year,” said Meghann Jarchow, coordinator for the Sustainability Program. “Some of our activities include helping the National Park Service build a trail along the Missouri National Recreational River, joining community members to paint drains in Vermillion to increase awareness about stormwater pollution and we will be bringing in internationally known Sandra Steingraber to talk about the linkages among water quality, human health, and environmental degradation.”
Steingraber’s keynote lecture will be Tuesday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in the MUC ballroom.
“We are very fortunate to have Sandra Steingraber deliver the Earth Days 2017 keynote lecture. She shows tremendous bravery in her advocacy work linking her own health struggles with cancer to the scientific information known about the links among different environmental contaminants and negative human health outcomes,” said Jarchow.
Earth Days is coordinated by the Sustainability Program and Greening Vermillion. The goal of Earth Days is to enhance environmental awareness and engagement by all members of the USD and Vermillion community. The full Earth Days schedule is available at Greening Vermillion's website.
