UW-Eau Claire Celebrates
Earth Week April 16-22
MAILED: April 4, 2001

          EAU CLAIRE — Several organizations at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will sponsor activities in honor of Earth Week April 16-22.
          All campus clubs involved in the Student Senate’s Adopt-a-Mall program will take part by cleaning up their designated campus areas.
          Members of the Residence Hall Environmental Group and Outdoor Recreation will help clean up the banks of the Chippewa River at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 17. Anyone interested should meet behind Hilltop Center.
          Members of the Catherine Wolter and Martin Castleberg families will present at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 19, in the Outdoor Recreation Center in the Hilltop Center basement. The families will discuss how they decided to preserve their land for future generations, forsaking the possibility of receiving a large amount of money from developers.
          Adrian Wydeven, one of the nation’s foremost experts on timber wolves, will present at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, also in the Outdoor Recreation Center. He will discuss timber wolf populations in Wisconsin and the United States.
          Other groups taking part in the week’s events are The Conservationists, Hobnailers Club, and the Geology Club.
          For more information on the presentations and the Chippewa River bank clean-up, call Outdoor Recreation, (715) 836-3616. For more information on Adopt-a-Mall and the other organizations’ events, call Anne Fowler at the Student Senate office, (715) 836-4646.
