Earth Day Commemorated

Unusually warm temperatures and bright sunshine made April 23 the perfect day for approximately 100 Minot State University students, faculty and staff to clean up the campus in honor of Earth Day. The Sustainability Committee handed out 67 T-shirts to students, Sodexo Campus Services served 600 slush burgers and brats and volunteers collected approximately 51 pounds of recyclables and 530 pounds of garbage.

Guest speakers Heather Duchsherer and Joe Super discussed Minot’s water quality. Duchscherer is an environmental scientist from the State Department of Health, and Super is a biology teacher at Minot High School who monitors the Souris River with his students.
