Voelker’s ‘Environmental History’ class plans cleanup walk for Earth Week


The students of the American Environmental History course taught by Associate Prof. David Voelker invite the campus community to participate in a cleanup walk to commemorate Earth Day. Although Earth Day is on April 22, the walk will take place on Tuesday, April 21, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. (rain or shine). Participants should meet outside of the Cofrin Library on the side nearest the Environmental Sciences (ES) building, near the plaque that celebrates the Wisconsin Idea. Participants will be provided with small garbage bags and will be asked to return at 10:30. Participants will be encouraged to walk across campus to enjoy the arboretum trails. The walker who picks up the most trash will receive, as a green badge of honor, a UW-Green Bay T-shirt donated by the Phoenix Bookstore. Participants who are unable to walk on the arboretum trails are welcome to use scooters or wheelchairs on paved or gravel walkways (as appropriate) and will be paired with a partner to pick up trash. If you have any questions, please contact David Voelker.
