Goucher College’s Earth Day and Earth Night celebrations were held Saturday, April 20. Students organized the celebrations. They were intended to raise awareness and fundraise for environmental clubs and their current campaigns.
Earth Day took place on the residential quad. Six clubs—Imagine More, the Agriculture Co-Op, GEAR, Goucher Outdoor Society, Yearbook Club, and Bollywood Club; two special interest houses—Peace House and Green House; and one outside vendor—a scarf-maker, attended and tabled the sparsely attended, but lively event. While the celebration was scheduled from one to five p.m., the festivities only began in earnest around two p.m.
