Tulanians celebrated Earth Day in Pocket Park on Tuesday with animals from the Audubon Zoo, a farmers market, and booths from student environmental organizations, the Office of Sustainability, and Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.

Students gather to watch as Lusa, a 2-year-old Virginia opossum, explores her surroundings in the Audubon Zoo exhibit at the Earth Day Celebration.

The Tulane Healthy Veggie Club offers a variety of veggie tattoos, as well as stickers and flyers promoting a vegan lifestyle.
