April 23, 2014 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
We are very excited to present this year’s Earth Day Celebration at American River College sponsored by the Center for Leadership & Development and The ARC Green Office Program!
American River College celebrates Earth Day 2014 on Wednesday, April 23, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The college will offer a variety of activities throughout the day, including informational demonstrations, educational awareness, and guest organizations and partners. A highlight of the day will be a talk entitled “Climate Change Science Update, Earth Day 2014” by internationally recognized author and teacher, Robert Christopherson. Dr. Christopherson will highlight the latest global climate change science, including the dramatic changes underway in the polar regions, with recent photos and observations from his September 2013 trip to the Arctic Ocean.
This event will be held in front of the Library / new Student Center, with an e-waste recycle drop off spot in the adjoining parking lot. We’ll have alternative fuel vehicles and a ton of vendors & organizations showcasing green options.
