Exhibitors at our campus event shared information on energy, recycling, mountaintop removal, and alternatives to household chemicals. Solar energy technology students explained how to make a portable solar generator, while the state Artist of the Year shared a sculpture made of recycled materials, a space-age creation that fascinated young and not-so-young.
The Friends of a local wildlife refuge brought information on our river's life, along with games that entertained children of all ages, while the Division of Forestry continued its popular tree giveaway program.
Trees seemed to be a theme, as one student's senior project involved making a tree out of recyclable materials, an art object that proved challenging to assemble
and move into position,
but the end result was a popular conversation-starter.
In fact, the entire event brought out the best in everyone there. All kinds of people made all kinds of connections, all for causes they cared about.
It was a very good day.
