Niagara goes green for Earth Day

Campus plants trees, hosts learning opportunities before Sunday's "holiday"


Students also watched a demonstration as students sorted garbage from the Gallagher Center and explained what could be recycled and how much landfill space would be saved by doing so. They also had the opportunity to take home a Venus Fly Trap.

Events like this recently helped the campus get recognition as one of the country's most environmentally responsible colleges by The Princeton Review.

"We are very proud to be considered one of the greenest colleges in the nation,” Ederer said. “While we strive to increase our sustainability on a continuous basis, Earth Day gives us another opportunity to bring attention to environmentally-friendly living and working."

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
