More than fifty students, faculty, staff and interested community members came by to celebrate Earth Day at NMSU Grants on April 26. We went on a bird walk, built bat houses, planted a tree and bird-attracting shrubs in the Earth Day garden. Some folks made pots fashioned from locally-harvested clay. We talked about nurturing bee habitat and using worms to enrich the soil. ASG provided lunch and hydration. A great time was had by all with lots of idea sharing going on and planning for future events. People interested in these kinds of things can contact Brian at 505-287-6629 or bpjohns@nmsu.edu to find out what is coming up.
