Information for Schools

Temple University is focused on ensuring the health and safety of our community members, and campus and Arboretum visitors. The university is taking several measures to keep everyone safe amid the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

On March 12, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced that all Montgomery County schools, including universities, would be closed for two weeks. In accordance, Temple University Ambler closed on Thursday, March 12. 

Regretfully, Temple University Ambler and Temple Ambler EarthFest Presents must take the necessary measure of postponing or rescheduling, where possible, all events and programs through the end of the spring semester.

The welfare of our visiting students, teachers, chaperones and exhibitors is our top priority. With the size of EarthFest Presents: Celebrating Earth Day, it is an event that, unfortunately, cannot be rescheduled. We are already planning Celebrating Earth Day 2021 and look forward to you being a part of it.
