Washington State University- Roots & Shoots 3rd annual Earth Day Celebration at Springfest. While there had been Earth Day events in the past, they were much smaller and poorly attended. Through collaboration and hard work, the WSU R&S group incorporated a large Earth Day fair in conjunction with the already established Springfest event, put on by the Student Entertainment Board. Now each year they get their message out to a large group of students who may not have otherwise attended. This year, there was about 20 informational tables with topics ranging from solar cooking to raptor rehabilitation. Giveaways included reusable grocery bags, compact fluorescent light bulbs, and composting kits. I thank the Environmental Task Force and R&S for inviting me back to my alma mater. It was a pleasure to give a presentation along side Solo Green and then help at this event. It was so much fun!
