The Office of Sustainability (OoS) & the Institute for a Sustainable Earth (ISE) are pleased to announce the theme for this year’s Earth Month: “Mason Patriots for our Planet.” In addition, we’re partnering with EARTHDAY.ORG — the organization behind the global observance of Earth Day — for the second year in a row!
In April, the Mason Nation hosts many programs, events, and initiatives to celebrate Earth Month and exemplify our university’s commitment to a just and sustainable future for all. OoS and ISE are working together throughout Earth Month to encourage Mason Patriots to make an impact!
Virtual Bike 2 Mason Week 2021: Fit a Flat (tire) with Kathy Bine
April 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Don’t let the potential for a flat tire stop you from biking for commuting or recreation. Learn how you can fix a flat at home or while on a bike ride. Join Kathy Bine, a long-time cyclist, as she walks you through how to fix a flat including how to check your tire inflation, the tools and supplies you need on hand, and the steps you will take to fix the flat. Please feel free to bring a flat tire to work on during the session.
