Summer 2015


Join us as we celebrate bicycling culture in Athens, Ohio.  

Mayor Paul Wiehl will unveil Athens’ formal designation as a Bike Friendly Community by the League of American Bikers.  Ohio University President Roderick McDavis (tentative) will lead the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly renovated section of the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway. 

Bring your bike!  Attendees will be invited to participate in a bike ride to the Athens Community Center where refreshments and give-aways will be available.  

The event begins at 10:30am on the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway near Peden Stadium and concludes at the Athens Community Center.  This event is free and open to the public. 

More details will be posted as information becomes available.



Local Summer Produce:

With so many farmers' markets and produce auctions in full swing, it's a great time to experiment with delicious recipes using local ingredients.  Click the photo below to download our June/July recipe cards for three of our office's favorite summer recipes. 


Staffing Update:

Ohio University's Office of Sustainability is excited to announce the addition of two full-time employees, Elaine Goetz and Sam Crowl. Elaine and Sam have been working with the office as part-time employees for the past year and their transition to full-time is allowing the Office of Sustainability to take a more proactive approach to implementing sustainable programs on campus.  


As the team within the Office of Sustainability transitions to this new structure, we will be reorganizing our program offerings and website.  We appreciate your patience as we finalize these structural changes.  In the meantime, if there is any information or document which you cannot find on our website, please feel invited to email us at


Thank you for your continued support of sustainable programs and infrastructure at Ohio University.
