Earth Day Fair - Friday April 22, 11am - 130pm (UC Front Lawn)

Please join the Lehigh University community in celebrating Earth Day 2016 at our vibrant, outdoor Earth Day Fair. This well-attended event seeks to enhance community and quality of life, educate on sustainable living, and encourage environmental stewardship. During the fair, students and members of the community will stop by to learn, engage, or interact with the booths that are set up. We encourage you to plan an intriguing or interactive booth (games, food/drink samples, art installation, craft projects, etc.). This fair is a great opportunity to share the message of your organization and to invite students, faculty and staff to participate in your events and programs.
