Bard College Celebrates Martin Luther King Day with Volunteer Projects
Bard students worked at more than 30 sites, ranging from Historic Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and Red Hook Public Library to Planned Parenthood. Students also participated in an E-Waste project where the Town and Villages of Red Hook and Tivoli, together with the Red Hook Conservation Advisory Council and Bard Office of Sustainability, hosted an electronic waste collection day for their residents.
Members of Bard's student-led TLS project Brothers at Bard also led a science project with Kingston High School students for elementary school students from nearby Rhinebeck, New York. The activities ranged from dissecting owl pellets to discovering and identifying bones, as well as testing sound physics and constructing lava lamps. Volunteers and engagement fellows from Bard's Center for Civic Engagement prepared lessons in conjunction with other student-led science activities taking place throughout the month in local school districts.
