33888483401_b2e7a94104_zApril 22 is Earth Day!

Children refer to it as Earth’s birthday, but it’s really the day when we pause to recognize the earth and all that it provides. It’s also an opportunity to take action and prevent its degradation.

This year, efforts are dedicated to environment and climate literacy. There are plenty of ways you can get involved at Broward College. Don’t just sit idly by, come participate in activities that will protect the planet. The events were kick started with the inaugural Science and Agricultural show on Central Campus, on Saturday, April 8 but there’s lots more upcoming.

From fairs to film festivals, join us as we celebrate our planet:
