Photo gallery Chalk it up to Earth Day
Earth Week at UW–Madison is an opportunity to celebrate as well as critically examine our relationships with the natural environment — and with each other. The Office of Sustainability coordinated a full slate of activities to bring the focus on protecting the planet. On April 20, students got together to chalk the sidewalks outside of the Historical Society with Earth Day-inspired art, to get campus excited for the day, on Friday, April 22.
