CSU green roof fundraiser

This event is to raise funds and awareness for a student-driven green rooftop project on Cleveland State University's Recreation Center. Beverages and appetizers provided.

The LEED-certified CSU Recreation Center was built a few years ago with the intention of having a 7,000 sq. ft .green roof. The project ran out of money after the roof was built (ready for a roof top garden to be installed). This past fall, a class in CSU's Environmental Science program decided to try and complete the green roof project.

"We are very excited to already have designed new blueprints for the roof including wheelchair access, experimental plots for the science department, solar lighting and space for physical education classes to take place or for students to study," writes Erin Huber, one of the students leading of the project.

On Wednesday, Nov. 19 they're hosting a gathering at the Rec. Center to raise awareness and funds ($206,000 are still needed).
