GGC Earth Day Celebration

Thu. Apr 19, 2018 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Student Center Plaza

Stop by the Student Center plaza to learn about the various ways GGC controls its environmental footprint and how you can be a better steward of our natural resources. Pick up a score sheet, collect stamps, and win prizes, including a very cool reusable GGC water bottle (for the first 50 qualifying scores).

Exhibitions will include:

  • Tours of GGC’s Microfarm and orchard
  • Arbor Day activities
  • Electric vehicle display along with information about how you can charge your EV at GGC, and take the Next Car Pledge to go electric
  • A geocaching competition for adventure and prizes
  • Free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (Why? Visit our table to find out!)
  • Voices for Animals, a student club that will display information about the environmental benefits of a plant-based vegan diet 
  • Posters and demos of some of GGC’s sustainability accomplishments
  • Samples of delicious snacks

The environmental science degree program will have a table staffed by faculty to talk to students about career possibilities and why they should consider a major in environmental science.

GGC’s Earth Day Celebration is sponsored by the GGC Sustainability Committee, Voices for Animals, the GGC Microfarm, and the environmental science department.
