American Corner Innsbruck

    2nd Annual Earth Day Picnic 

    Wednesday, April 22, 12am-5pm, Prandtauer Ufer Park across from the Humanities Building

    The American Corner Innsbruck hosted its second annual Earth Day picnic on the 22nd of April here in Innsbruck at the Prantauer Ufer. The Prandtauer Ufer park is one of the many green public areas kept by the City of Innsbruck. It features a slack line park, as well as a basketball court and some trees and grass for other games. The park’s trees were in full bloom and offered the perfect surroundings for a picnic. From slacklines to frisbees, to badminton and footballs, the ACI team contributed all they could for some relaxing outdoor enjoyment.  We even did some “tree-hugging”.  And what’s a picnic without some delicious snacks and wholesome juices? Over 65 students, professors and passers-by stopped over to get some information provided by the ACI and graze the snack table. Packets of cress and rocket seeds for planting at home were distributed, attached to some information on urban gardening. The weather was nothing short of perfect making it that much more enjoyable to be outdoors, appreciate nature and help raise awareness for  the environment on Earth Day.
