Happy Earth Week!
Students from several organizations across campus have organized a suite of activities for April 18–23, 2022 to help us celebrate Planet Earth and learn about ways to leave a lighter footprint. Please check out the poster and the full schedule (updated in real time) for further descriptions and links to virtual events. At noon on Wednesday, April 20, the participating groups will hold an Earth Week Fair in the first-floor atrium of Jamrich Building. Stop by their tables, and participate in any of the other events held throughout the week.
We hope that you will attend at least one Earth Week session as a welcome study break during the last week of classes.

Anderton’s Earth Week honors the memory of Dr. John B. Anderton, an NMU alumnus, professor, and former department head of the Department of Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences who passed away unexpectedly in March 2014 at age 49. Students of NMU’s Eta Chi Chapter of GTU International Geographical Honor Society started the first Anderton’s Earth Day to remember Dr. Anderton and the lessons that he had taught students about Mother Nature.
