Additional Information:  Biosafety Office, 852-6670.

 

7.) Green Tip: Tap into the power of the summer solstice

As we approach the longest day of the year, take stock of what truly sustains us. Tap into the sun’s power with a solar-heated shower at the Student Rec Center. Or try fresh, local produce photosynthesized right here in Kentucky that’s available for sale today at the farmers markets, or free for the picking in our very own Garden Commons. Then give something back to nature during Saturday’s solstice by helping with UofL’s annual Horner Wildlife Sanctuary butterfly count.

 

8.) University Club Book Club reading ‘Canada’
