Silent Spring

By walke328

The Silent Spring tour commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the book that helped change the dangers of using DDT pesticides. This tour shows you around the MSU campus with stops that correlate to the book and the scientific discoveries of the effects of DDT. Most stops are accompanied with a picture from the time Silent Spring was researched to give a view of the past combined with the present.

While on the tour, be conscious about bikers, pedestrians, and cars. Depending on when you walk the tour, campus tends to be busy.
