Stanford Celebrates Earth Day with Educational and Service Activities

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

The Water Planning and Stewardship Team engaged the campus community in water education and conservation in celebration of Earth Day this year.  The team provided tours of two key components of Stanford’s water infrastructure: stormwater capture strategies and the Cloy and Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C).  These systems play an integral part in the infrastructure that keeps our waterways clean and local communities safe from flooding, respectively. The stormwater tour is also available in a new online format.

Additionally, for the fourth annual Earth Week Service Day, over 50 volunteers signed up to work in the Arizona Cactus Garden and Stanford Foothills. Volunteers helped with weeding and native plant restoration in the historic Arizona Garden, and supported invasive weed control in the California Tiger Salamander Conservation Easement at the Stanford Dish.
