Palomar students and staff are invited to come out and celebrate Earth Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 19 in the Student Union, according to event organizers.
“The event is free to everyone and designed to encourage, enlighten and empower students and staff toward a more sustainable future,” Palomar Student Activities Coordinator Lindsay Kretchman said.
Various campus clubs will attend and hand out information on what students can do to help the environment. Attendees will also be invited to join in games, eat pepperoni and cheese pizza or simply enjoy live music to celebrate the day, according to Kretchman.
The Friends of Arboretum is an organization made up of nature lovers such as but not limited to biologists dedicated to preservation of Palomar’s botanical garden of trees. They will attend the event and set up a table of rare potted plants that students and faculty can buy.
