Earth Day is coming up this Sunday and the University of Oregon has a variety of projects, which you can get involved in.

University of Oregon students decided that one day wasn’t enough to celebrate Mother Earth and has held a weeks worth of volunteer opportunities ranging from working with food for lane county to removing invasive ivy. 

There are many ways you can volunteer your time, not just around the University of Oregon campus, but also all over Eugene. 

No matter how small your contribution, these volunteer events are a wonderful opportunity to interact with your fellow community members as well as making a positive impact on the environment.
