On Thursday, April 20, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania will hold an Earth Day celebration event from noon to 4 p.m. on the main quad on campus. The theme for this year’s event is “Climate change – go green to save the blue.” The afternoon will be filled with live music, guest speakers and trivia games.

Just after the opening introductions for the day, at 12:10 p.m. Rob Howell, general manager of the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, will present “Environmental responsibility in business and day-to-day life.” At 1:20 p.m. Karen Boyle of the Monroe County Conservation District will present “Climate Change and you – from ESU grad to Environmental Educator.” The final presentation of the day will be “Amphibians and climate change: Out of the frying pan and into the fire” presented by Thomas LaDuke, Ph.D., associate professor of biology at ESU.

Live music is scheduled between each presentation along with enviro-trivia, giveaways, and activity booths. This event is free and open to the public.
