The Sustainability department, part of the Administrative Operations organization, is partnering with other university departments and student organizations to celebrate Earth Month this April. Earth Month is an extended celebration of Earth Day, which is April 22.

The campus community is invited to attend various events that will focus on sustainable initiatives. For instance, this year’s events include an Earth Day Fair scheduled for April 18 and a Day of Service on April 26. The Day of Service will bring together volunteers to plant trees and represent the final major event planned to help achieve the 1869 Tree Planting Master Plan.

“In the past, Purdue has typically celebrated Earth Week, but we have taken the opportunity to extend the celebration the last two years,” said Tony Gillund, director of Sustainability. “The monthlong celebration allows more time to promote sustainability initiatives happening all across campus.” 

More information about these events and other activities scheduled during the month of April is available on the Sustainability website. Some events may require registration, which is also available on the Sustainability website.

Many of the planned events are weather dependent. Check Sustainability’s social media channels on Facebook, Instagram or X (formerly known as Twitter) for updated information, including cancellations.

The Administrative Operations organization supports the university through safe, reliable and transformative services. Hosting events to celebrate Earth Day and our environment is just one of many ways the organization powers Purdue.
