SECIA’s spring event is just around the corner! The TCEducate Earth Day Extravaganza is a continuation of SECIA’s tradition of organizing a community gathering on Earth Day each spring. This year, we’ll be putting on an Earth Day festival on April 22nd. We’ll be kicking it off on the University of Minnesota campus with a SECIA-sponsored organics recycling table at the University’s Earth Day Expo.  The Earth Day Expo will feature Campus and Non-Campus organizations presenting environmental information and volunteer opportunities from 11:00-2:00 PM on the Gateway Mall near McNamara Alumni Center.

  • Free compostable bags & stump the master composter
