Recreational Services Lunchtime Adventure Walk: Invasive Species

Recreational Services Program Offers Environmental Education During Lunchtime


Kent State University’s Department of Recreational Services is introducing a new program called “Lunchtime Adventure Walks,” running every Wednesday from Sept. 23 to Oct. 14.

The initiative is aimed at educating faculty and staff about environmental sustainability at the university, while encouraging them to stay active during their lunch break, says Abby Millsaps, marketing coordinator for the Department of Recreational Services. However, anyone is permitted to participate in the free program.

Each week, participants will meet at the University Library on the Kent Campus at 12:15 p.m. The 30-minute walks around campus will be led by a senior zoology major at Kent State. Each walk will have a different environmental theme.

Week Two, Sept. 30 - Sustainability
Week Three, Oct. 7 - Invasive Species in Portage County
Week Four, Oct. 14 - Wetlands
“It’s a great educational opportunity, as well as a great way to get out of the office and get a little exercise,” Millsaps says.
