USG Community Day
The Universities at Shady Grove
Saturday, September 22nd
10am – 3pm (rain or shine)
9636 Gudelsky Drive, Rockville, MD 20850
Enjoy this year’s “green” theme, with a guest lecture from environmental activist and author, Mike Tidwell, and be amazed by an eco-friendly art exhibit, with pieces made entirely of recycled or repurposed materials.
Volunteers are still needed to help at Maryland’s iSchool family crafts tables. Assist our young visitors as they create spiral snakes celebrating Janell Cannon’s Verdi, create a paper bag caterpillars celebrating Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and plant sunflower seeds celebrating Eric Carle’s The Tiny Seed. Please contact Melissa McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to volunteer for all or part of the day. Wear a red t-shirt to identify yourself as a University of Maryland volunteer – we’ll have a few red and white spiral stovepipe hats to wear, too! We will be located in Building I, Room 109 … come out and join the fun!
