UH Earth Day Carnival to feature free games, food
The University of Houston will host an Earth Day Carnival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at Butler Plaza.
There will be several departments and vendors out to engage students about the University’s sustainability efforts including the Corral the Grease program, Green Houston Program and the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. Honest Tea representatives will also be at the carnival passing out samples to students as they walk by. Students will be able to enjoy food and games during the festivities hosted by Green UH.
Several UH departments, including Parking and Transportation Services, Dining Services, the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, HRM Green Team and the Division of Administration and Finance, will participate and offer activities in which may students engage. A weather balloon will be launched from students from the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.
“Our goal is to make this year’s Earth Day Carnival fun and exciting as well as educational for all of the students,” said Billy Garner, Marketing Coordinator for Auxiliary Services.
“We encourage and invite all students to come out to Butler Plaza to have some cake and help us celebrate all of our accomplishments in sustainability this past year. It would be a good break in between classes to enjoy some games and refreshments.”
