Earth Day

April 22, 2019 (All day)


Researchers at Stanford are working to better understand our changing earth and the people living within it. Earth Day 2019 is an opportunity to reflect on what we’ve learned about the health and future of the planet and make strides to investigate new ideas and solutions to the most pressing environmental challenges.

Follow us on twitter @StanfordWoods for #Earthday2019 posts and information on recent work and events that promote environmental understanding. The theme for 2019 is “Protect our Species”. Learn more about Stanford’s environmental research involving pikas, caterpillars, and other species in our 2018 Year in Review and check out events on and off campus supporting environmental awareness this Earth Day:
