The 13 Days of Celebrating the Earth were a big success. From farmers markets and a celebration of campus trees to a health and wellbeing fair and a day of reflection, the 13 Days offered something for everyone to celebrate. Did you miss some of the days’ events? You can sample some highlights below and check out the photos in our flickr gallery.
