Working Toward Greenness

Earth Month brings a variety of interesting and informative activities to the Pace campuses. Read on to learn how you can do your part this April.

April showers bring May flowers… or so we hear. To find out what else April has to offer the Pace Community, check out our numerous events celebrating Earth Month. Join us for a month dedicated to raising environmental awareness on and off campus. Here are just a few highlights:

Birds of Prey Presentation Wednesday, April 27, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in PLV.
Join James Eyring, for an unforgettable evening with hawks, owls, and falcons. Learn about the role these predators serve in the natural community and the Environmental Center’s work with birds of prey. Be prepared as several of these raptors zoom past you in free flight!

Breakfast with the Birds Wednesday, April 27, 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.
Pace University and Rockefeller State Park Preserve invite you to enjoy coffee and bagels before heading out on the carriage roads of the Preserve to see what birds are active in the woodlands, fields, and wetlands. So bring your binoculars and a field guide to birds for a fun morning of birding. The Preserve is located only three miles from Pace, and directions will be provided. Please pre-register by sending an email to aspillo@pace.edu
