Mid Michigan College continues to make strides toward sustainable practices on campus, and plans to celebrate Earth Day in a way that respects current health guidelines.

“Increased efforts in recycling, energy management, and the establishment of our pollinator project all speak to how much the College community truly cares about being Earth-friendly,” noted Alan Gamble, Life Science Instructor at Mid.

The College will host a variety of socially-distanced activities to celebrate Earth Day 9am-4pm Thursday, April 22 on the Mt. Pleasant Campus (2600 S Summerton Rd).

  • Self-guided displays will feature six student environmental service projects - Binder Finder, Adopt-a-Road, Mt Pleasant’s Free Tree program, Analysis & Reduction of Campus Paper Use, Increasing Paper Recycling Stream, and Mid’s Electrical Assessment & Efficiency Actions. Short video summaries of student projects will also be available on the College’s social media channels.
  • A variety of campus and community groups will have materials available for pick-up.
  • White spruce seedlings and LED bulbs will be available for a donation of any size. Proceeds benefit Mid’s future community garden.
  • As the College makes plans to develop a community garden, we encourage everyone to watch the award-winning, new “Kiss the Ground” documentary at https://kissthegroundmovie.com/.
  • Mid also encourages participation in Earth Week events at Central Michigan University.
