Made up of faculty, staff, and students, the HMSC Green Team helps advance environmentally sustainable practices at Hatfield Marine Science Center.
Discover some of the resources available at HMSC that can help your unit, personnel, and students have a lighter impact on our coast and the planet.
Green Team virtual meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, from 9AM - 10AM. Join online using this Zoom Link
At our November meeting, we’ll hear from Hatfielders who have gone through the process of obtaining OSU Green Certification designations. We’ll talk about how the process works and share resources that can help you apply for Green Certification for your own HMSC unit. Even if your unit is not part of OSU, you can still use the survey tools and application questions to get great ideas to GREEN your office or lab! All are welcome.
This month, get started with your own Green Certification application! Share your progress using #HatfieldEcoChallenge.
