We will be meeting at the East Entrance to building 16 near the greenhouse. We'll have four different locations around campus to plant. The plants chosen promote pollinator health, specific to Willamette Valley Pollinators.
Everybody is welcome to and encouraged to participate in this event, including staff, management, faculty, and of course our wonderful students!
Come help us in the process of turning our campus into a "bee-autiful" pollinator friendly buffet!

Drawdown EcoChallenge is a 21-day engagement program focused on carbon reduction. The challenge takes place April 3-24 and follows actions highlighted in Drawdown, a book based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models, and describes solutions to global warming that already exists. Participants track and share their progress online in a robust platform and earn points for taking action. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.
Drawdown EcoChallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions to reverse global warming. Over eighty actions within seven challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce carbon usage.

The Human Element
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We humans are a force of nature. At the same time human activities alter the basic elements of life – earth, air, water, and fire – those elements change human life.
In an arresting new documentary from the producers of RACING EXTINCTION, THE COVE and CHASING ICE, environmental photographer James Balog captures the lives of everyday Americans on the front lines of climate change. With rare compassion and heart, THE HUMAN ELEMENT’s coast-to-coast series of captivating stories inspires us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world.
