There’s still plenty of time to get in on Earth Week activities at Oregon State. We can’t think of a better place than OSU to show how education and research play critical roles in preserving our environment. We are the nation’s top-rated university in conservation biology, forestry and agriculture, and our faculty and students consistently lead studies with significant implications for our planet.
We’d like to call special attention to the upcoming lecture by Dennis Dimick, an Oregon State alum and the executive editor for the environment at National Geographic magazine. On Thursday he will be presenting this year’s Gov. Tom McCall Memorial Lecture, a talk titled, “Changing Planet: Where Energy and Climate Collide.” The talk is set for the 22nd at 7 p.m. at the LaSells Stewart Center.
Before that, you can check out the annual Earth Day Hoo Haa, given by Oregon State’s Organic Grower’s Club and soil science professor James Cassidy. There will be free food, music, and you’ll get the chance to help plant 10,000 onions!
