Remembering UConn’s First Earth Day

Wednesday, April 18, 2018
3:30pm – 4:30pm

Storrs Campus
Beach Hall, RM 233 (Reading Room)

On April 22, 1970 student activists dragged UConn forward into the modern environmental movement. Their “24-hour ‘be-in,’” their “marathon…multi-media fantasia on ecology” is absent from the university’s official history. Why? Please join Professor Robert Thorson (Geosciences) for a slide show, memories, and discussion.
