It makes perfect sense that Santa Monica College, nestled into one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles, would host and Earth Week Celebration. The five-day event focuses on many of the important environmental factors that are degrading the beauty of our oceans, beaches and wildlife - all of which are seriously important to Santa Monica College, as well as the rest of us. Earth Week kicks off on April 22nd, and will feature a rotating list of lecturers and demonstrations on campus. Scheduled talks include interactive exhibits on the declining bee population, a screening of the documentary Queen of the Sun, recycling exchanges and a beach cleanup session.
