Explore Your Watershed: An Earth Day Celebration

Earth DayYour are invited to join students in the Environmental Policy Social justice Seminar and the Dance Department who will collaborate on a Marygrove Earth Day celebration on Wednesday, April 22 from 10-noon in the Fisher Room of the Library.

Michigan stewards a significant supply of fresh water. Interdisciplinary Studies students will be discussing their research on issues in the Southeast Michigan’s watersheds: Rouge, Huron, Clinton and Saginaw. They prepared informative posters dealing with each watershed’s key problems, water quality, social justice advocacy group activities, and recommendations for individuals involvement in water stewardship. The posters will be available all day in the library.

At 11 AM in the Fisher Room Dance majors will perform “ Women of the Water,” a choreography set by Professor Penny Godboldo and initially performed in the March 2015 “The Beginnings” dance concert. The choreography uses the Dunham Technique theory and philosophy to emphasize the ability to become activists by speaking up for issues that affect the quality of our lives, particularly for those who cannot speak up for themselves.

For more information, contact: Penny Godboldo, Jane Hammang-Buhl, or Steve Scribner.
