Earth Day is a special day to honor our planet and all it does for us. Bentley has such a beautiful campus and there is so much you can do to enjoy the day, so grab a friend and enjoy!

Hang out on the Green Space

Both the upper and lower green spaces are great places to spend the afternoon. Bring a blanket and your laptop to get some studying down or take a study break and play some spike ball. Either way, you’re bound to have a great time. Pro tip: take advantage of the grills! Bring some food and get cooking.

Visit a Local Farmer’s Market

Wilson’s Farm is a great place for shopping local and picking up fresh produce. They offer tons of local fruits and veggies, bakery items and much more. Their nursery is also beautiful and they sell many different types of seeds, flowers and plant varieties. Not to mention, their grounds are so beautiful and a great place to walk around and take some photos.

Go for a Walk with Friends

Walking is a great way to get exercise and to get outside. There are so many awesome places in Waltham to walk and my roommates love getting to explore parts of the city. Prospect Hill Park and Stonehurst right by campus are wonderful.

Enjoy a Plant-Based Meal

It is way better for the planet to eat plant based foods because they emit significantly less greenhouse gas emissions. Try some veggie tacos, plant-based burgers, or pasta to give back to the Earth on this special day.
