Athens, Ga. – In conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the University of Georgia Office of Sustainability and Go Green Alliance are hosting campus sustainability walking tours of UGA’s north, south and east campus precincts on April 21.

North, south and east campus tours will run concurrently beginning at 3 p.m. at the new Tate Student Center West Lawn green roof plaza. Participants will be bused to the start of the walking tour locations. The tours will conclude at 4:30 p.m. with a waste-free reception at the Tate Center to include live music and light, local fare.
