Celebrate Earth Month at Knox College
Each year Knox celebrates Earth Day (April 22) with a month of activities, lectures, workshops, and more - all leading up to the annual Earth Day Festival. Led by Students for Sustainability, with the collaboration of other student organizations, the Office of Sustainability, and the President's Council on Sustainability, it is a month of learning about being better stewards for the Earth.
This year, due to the ongoing stay-at-home order from the State of Illinois, and Knox's decision to teach spring term remotely, we have shifted to virtual ways to observe the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
