Today is Earth Day, and the Princeton University community is observing the annual global celebration supporting the environment with a series of events.

Everyone is welcome to participate in a work session from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the student-run Forbes Garden at 79 Alexander Road, Forbes College. Volunteers will plant, water, weed and help with general garden activities.

Between 2 and 5 p.m., a student-organized Earth Day Celebration will be held on the Frist Campus Center South Lawn. Sponsored by the Office of Sustainability and the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, it will include information about Earth Day and sustainability, performances by student groups, as well as food and beverages. During the event, the winner of the “Do It in the Dark” energy-saving competition among residential colleges will be announced.
