EASE Poster for Earth Day Celebration 2015 at VillaThe college will be hosting a handful of events throughout the day on Thursday, including:

  • Vegan Chili Sale: Chili and other goodies will be sold from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Dining Hall. All proceeds go to support the club and future environmental and recycling efforts.

  • Tree Planting: A tree, donated by the EASE club, will be planted on campus at 4:00 p.m. The tree will be planted by the Pennock Street entrance. All are welcome to join.

This culminates a week of events surrounding Earth Day 2015 including Dr. Ryan Hartnett and several EASE members planting trees on Saturday, April 18, as part of the Buffalo Re-Tree initiative.

Re-Tree WNY was established on November 3, 2006 by a group of about 40 Western New York residents who decided to take action to re-forest every public area that was destroyed by the surprise October snowstorm that year. Working with a goal to replace the approximately 30,000 trees that were damaged or destroyed, the group began started on Arbor Day, 2007 where 2,000 trees were planted.

These events are sponsored by the Villa EASE student group, which shares information on issues impacting the environment, while addressing how individuals can respond to help “ease” up on the earth and all creation.
