As the Tusculum College Earth Day Extravaganza community celebration continues to grow, volunteers are critical to being able to carry off the scope of the event. Sponsored by the Pioneer Green Team, the event commemorates Earth Day with activities focused on sustainability and environmental education.
This year’s Earth Day Extravaganza will be held on April 14, beginning at 9 a.m. Most of the activities will be held on the lawn between the Arch and McCormick Hall; however, historic tree tours will be given on campus and trees will be planted at the top of each hour at the Honors House near Doak Elementary School.
The event is open not only to staff, faculty and students at Tusculum College, but to the community and region. Several local school groups are expected to attend.
As a result, volunteers are desperately needed, particularly in the morning hours. Any faculty member interested in using the event as an opportunity to participate in a group service project is encouraged to do so. And any other staff, faculty or student who is interested in helping out please contact the Pioneer Green Team; all help will be greatly appreciated.
All volunteers are asked to consider wearing a green shirt on the day of the event for easy identification. Arm bands will also be provided.
If you would like to volunteer or find out more about the event, please contact Kirstie Gust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
