“Gardens and Verses: An Earth Day Celebration,” being offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, April 19, is an event cosponsored with the Department of English. Several stations will provide participants the opportunity to learn how to write in specific genres of poetry as well as to contemplate the particular natural settings the gardens have to offer. A literary scavenger hunt will familiarize attendees with the wide range of plants contained in the gardens. There will be literary readings and an “open mic” for those who wish to share original work. Some light snacks will be provided.
