Earth Month

Help us name our new Earth Month Mascot!

Please join the Lehigh community in celebrating Earth Month 2024!

Lehigh celebrates Earth Month by hosting a month of educational and engaging events. Earth Month is an opportunity to celebrate the beauty and bounty of our planet, while also embracing our responsibility to curb our environmental impact to protect the earth for future generations.

Join us in celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 26th from 10:30 AM - 1 PM on the STEPS Lawn!

Lehigh Sustainability’s vibrant, outdoor Earth Day Fair gives students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to learn from and interact with a myriad of booths showcasing sustainability clubs, initiatives, programs, and departments from around campus!

“I am thrilled to bring back the Earth Day Fair! Over 20 sustainability-related clubs, programs and initiatives will be showcased and it is heartwarming that our community will gather once again in celebration of Earth Day and Lehigh's commitment to becoming a model sustainable campus. I welcome you to join us for our Earth Month festivities and participate in this global celebration,” said Audrey McSain, Sustainability Director.

Bridging diverse ways of knowing to studies of infrastructure in Arctic regions: lessons from Siberia.

In this presentation, I will discuss results from several research projects focused on studies of infrastructure in remote communities of Siberia. Each of the projects involved community engagement and collaboration between natural and social scientists and artists. I will discuss my positionality as a human geographer, conducting interviews and observations, and as an Indigenous scholar born and raised in a small village in SIberia. How I collaborated with remote sensing experts, landscape scientists, artists and communities for studies of specific issues relevant for communities.
