HUNTINGTON - The Marshall University Sustainability Department continues its weeklong celebration of Earth Day with campus events, including its Earth Day Fair on Wednesday afternoon that featured 65 booths in and around the Memorial Student Center from both the Marshall family and from the surrounding communities.

Visitors were able to learn about everything from hemp farming to composting, to "green" vehicles and building design, as well as walking and cycling options around the city.

As the week draws to a close, the Sustainability Department continues to showcase the many ways that Marshall campus and the Huntington community can go green. From 2 to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Room 2E10 in the Memorial Student Center, there will be an Electric Vehicle Workshop organized by the West Virginia Electric Auto Association. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 26, there will be a volunteer work day in the greenhouse that is located on Buskirk Field, where participants will be weeding, planting and working in the butterfly, vegetable, herb and hydroponic garden.
