As part of Earth Week 2017 activities, please join us for a volunteer opportunity to participate in campus-wide fruiting ivy removal on Fri., April 21 from 12:30-3:30 p.m.

This is an all-volunteer effort to remove fruiting ivy from our campus planting beds during Earth Week 2017. Birds love to eat ripe ivy berries, which they then spread throughout the region into our yards and greenbelts causing major damage to both our personal and public spaces. Ivy is an extremely damaging plant once it becomes aerial and should be eradicated from our ecosystem. All participants will need to fill out a volunteer registration form to participate, and volunteer forms must be submitted by Fri., April 14. The forms are available at the Associated Student Government offices (3rd-floor PUB) and from the Music department room 807 and will also be available at the Environmental Club table at the Back-to-School Kick-Off event in the PUB Main Dining Room on Thurs., April 13 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
