On CU-Boulder’s campus this week, learn how sugar plantations in Central America are connected with an epidemic of chronic kidney disease. Also find out about bears coming out of hibernation and a prehistoric reconstruction of the Sierra Nevada snowpack. A course that looks at sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s patterns and strategies, or biomimicry principles, will also be presented at this week’s university events.
Next Sunday, April 22nd, is Earth Day. The Center for Resource Conservation, with a mission of empowering our community to conserve natural resources, will be holding an Earth Day 5k from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the University of Colorado Research Park 4001 Discovery Drive, Boulder.
