UWW is celebrating Earth Week April 19-21 with a variety of events, although the “week” is truncated this year because of the state-mandated campus-wide furlough on Friday, April 22 (which is actually Earth Day).
The 2011 campus theme is “The Water-Energy Nexus.” Events are listed online, and include a tree planting, films, speakers, and a show of “some of the latest technologies in electric and alternative fuel vehicles.”
