Hopefully by now you know that April is Earth Month at Augsburg: a time to learn, advocate, create community, and celebrate our shared love of the earth.

Next Friday April 21st, we are focusing on active, green transportation. We hope you will join us for one or all three of our events that day…

Friday April 21st All Day! Bike, Walk, Roll to Campus Day!

To celebrate Earth Month, bike, walk, skateboard, rollerblade, or take another active and environmentally friendly mode of transportation to Augsburg! Send a picture of yourself commuting to campus to be shared on social media to or @sustainable_augsburgu on Instagram. Sharing a picture of your commute will enter you into a random drawing for the chance to win a gift card to a local business.

Friday April 21st 10:40-11am Earth Month Chapel: Blessing of the Bikes

Roll into Hoversten Chapel with your bikes, skates, skateboards, and other beloved modes of green transportation for a fun time of community blessing and celebration around our shared commitment to care for our planet home. CASUS and EAC will help you fix your bike later in the day, but first let Campus Ministry help you bless it!

Location: Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center

Friday April 21st 3:30-5:30PM CASUS and EAC Bike Workshop

Join the Club of Augsburg Sociology & Urban Studies (CASUS) and other bike enthusiasts to celebrate all things biking! Bring your bike for a basic maintenance walkthrough with a representative from Freewheel bike shop and customize your bike with a recycled milk carton basket! Additionally, we will be giving away a free bike rack to one member and their lucky ride! You can also stop by to purchase bike racks or try your hand at upcycling provided milk-crates into cargo racks to attach to your bike! Don’t have a bike? No problem! Come and meet the bikes of the Augsburg Bikeshare Program!

Location: Murphy Square
