A Plethora of Eco-Friendly Events On Tap for Earth Day at Niagara University

A Plethora of Eco-Friendly Events On Tap for Earth Day at Niagara University

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day last April, The Princeton Review, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, published a comprehensive guidebook focused on institutions of higher education who demonstrated an above average commitment to sustainability in terms of campus infrastructure, activities and initiatives.

From the Buffalo-Niagara region, only Niagara University was included on that list of the country's most environmentally responsible colleges.

One year later, Niagara is making preparations to celebrate that distinction and, more importantly, inspire awareness for the Earth's natural environment by presenting over 20 eco-friendly exhibitions as part of Earth Day 2011.

Pet Connection Needs Your Immediate Support!

This puppy and countless others like him have been saved thanks to the work done every day at Pet Connection Programs Inc., a nonprofit maternity and urgent care animal shelter in Marilla. Every year, hundreds of dogs, cats, kittens, puppies and other animals are nursed to health and adopted to a loving home thanks to this shelter.

How can you help? Please show your holiday spirit by purchasing tickets to the shelter’s Holiday Dinner Dance & Auction from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, December 4 at the Hearthstone Manor in Depew. In addition to plenty of food and a huge auction featuring more than 100 prizes, guests will be entertained by Jack Civiletto & The Pyramid Band. One lucky guest will also win a door prize featuring four one-day Disney hopper passes valued at $544!
