The community is invited to Weatherford College’s annual Earth Day celebration on Monday, April 22, from 10:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kramer Flag Plaza and Grogan Historic Plaza on the Weatherford campus.
This year’s Earth Day celebration will include a display of electric vehicles, solar panels, presentations from environmental biology students, a trash art contest and a recycle raffle.
“We want to highlight the eco-friendly efforts that are already being made by many of our students and campus organizations,” said Dr. Allison Stamatis, event organizer and WC life science instructor. “There are numerous organizations and resources that are available to our students in Parker County and the surrounding community so they may gain knowledge about our local environment.”
The event will also include booths from the WC Science Club, Phi Theta Kappa, City of Weatherford Recycling, Weatherford/Parker County Animal Shelter, Ag Extension Services, Parker County Master Gardeners, Follow Our Lead, TRIO, the Hood County Clean Air Coalition, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and more.
“This is a remarkable opportunity to increase our students’ awareness of local and global environmental issues, and to let our community know about the proactive steps that Weatherford College is taking,” Stamatis said.
