Spring Into Gardening Walk - Rescheduled to Tuesday, April 24
Spring Into Gardening Walk
Hosted by Ann Dailey, Master Gardner
Tuesday, April 24
Meet at Hurwitz Green, John Dickinson Campus: 7:45 a.m.
Walk begins promptly at 8 a.m.
Join us for this Garden Walk that originates on the Hurwitz Green in front of the Stern Center. Master Gardner Ann Dailey will fill the walk with facts and fun as we walk through the college's many gardens and learn about the horticultural wonders planted across the campus.
One out of every three bites of food we eat, and approximately 80% of all flowering plants are pollinated by insects and animals we call pollinators: butterflies and moths, bees, birds, beetles and more. Many of them, especially bees and butterflies, are declining rapidly due to habitat loss, disease, and pesticide use. You can help these beneficial insects and animals by filling your yard with pollinator-friendly plants, shrubs, and trees that provide the food and shelter needed for survival. Learn about what makes a plant pollinator-friendly, and how to grow it in your garden. A special emphasis on our own Kaufman pollinator garden, planted last spring, will tempt you with new ideas.
Employees may register now for the Spring Into Gardening Walk in Totara via the Gateway: Enroll in the Spring Into Fitness Challenge course, then “sign-up” for this event. Students should send an email to email@example.com to register for this event. Walk-up participation is welcome!Displayed through Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Lung Health: The Importance of Every Breath
Presented by Shannon Mason, BSN, RN, CTTS, HWC of UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle
Thursday, April 26
HUB Social Hall East | noon-1 p.m.
Our body requires oxygen to function and thrive. When we breath, the air content includes oxygen and other atmospheric gases. Once we inhale, oxygen moves throughout our body and lungs via the bloodstream. Without a healthy set of lungs, quite obviously our very existence is compromised. How does our body handle oxygenation and process this very important part of living? What happens when things go awry with breathing due to multiple causes? Attend this presentation to learn more.
Employees may register now in Totara by searching and enrolling in the course name Wellness Info Sessions, and signing-up under the Lung Health: The Importance of Every Breath link.
