Many campuses across the US are celebrating tomorrow, Oct 21, 2009 as Campus Sustainability Day. There is even a webcast you can join in via the Society for College and University Planning. If you prefer more direct human contact, and happen to be in the Fresno State vicinity tomorrow, why not check out our campus’ First Annual Sustainability Day event – see full announcement below the fold. You might even to win a cool bicycle! I’m glad our campus is finally joining this event in its 7th year – better late than never, eh?
