Put on your gardening gloves, grab a paintbrush, and get ready for North Lake Shore Earth Day 2013!
Loyola Community Relations is partnering with 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman, 49th Alderman Joe Moore, State Senator Heather Steans, and State Representative Kelly Cassidy, to sponsor a series of hand-on projects to clean, green, and beautify the Rogers Park and Edgewater communities.
In previous years, Loyola University’s Earth Day event involved a large scale public symposium, where hundreds of community residents attended educational workshops pertaining to green technology, caring for the environment, and implementing green practices into everyday living. North Lake Shore Earth Day 2013 will focus on direct student service engagement with the surrounding community, providing a positive impact on the neighborhoods of Rogers Park and Edgewater, and fostering healthy student–neighbor relations.
Loyola’s North Lake Shore Earth Day 2013 events will take place first on April 13th where students and local residents will partake in hands-on service projects to support green efforts in the 49th Ward. On April 20th, Loyola students will join the 48th Ward’s Clean & Green, and engage in a series of gardening and city beautification projects in the Edgewater community.
