Sylvania, PCC campuses celebrate Earth Week

Photos and Story by | View the comment

Last week (April 21-25) was Earth Week around PCC, including the Sylvania Campus. Students, staff and faculty engaged the community with displays, interactive demonstrations, habitat education and lectures on climate change. In the video you’ll see ASPCC’s “DIY Recycled Crafts” where people could reuse donated items to create art; Physics Instructor Toby Dittrich’s “Climate Change Solutions: Past Present and Future” lecture that featured speakers Jeremy Brown (PCC President), retired Sylvania President Linda Gerber and former Oregon Secretary Bill Bradbury; the building of worm bin composting containers; and an adventure with Sylvania’s Habitat Restoration Team. But Earth Week was a PCC affair. Check out what happened at other campuses!

Can’t wait to see solar panels on top of the CC building and a few L2 charging stations in the back of the parking lots! Also possible L1 (120Volt) charging from receptacles on the light poles.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
