Yuba College's Clear Lake Campus plans Earth Day celebration

CLEARLAKE – The Clear Lake Campus of Yuba College will celebrate Earth Day 2008 on Tuesday, April 22.


The US government Web site says, “Earth Day is a time to celebrate gains we have made and create new visions to accelerate environmental progress. Earth Day is a time to unite around new actions. Earth Day and every day is a time to act to protect our planet.”


The Earth Day event at the Clear Lake Campus will be held during the college hour from 11:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m.


At noon there will be a special earth blessing guided by Pomo elders. Community groups, students and classes will have booths, entertainment and resources to educate and inform the community on environmental, ecological and educational issues related to Earth Day.


Live music will be performed during the event by professor Dr. Harry Lyons, instructors Doug and Sissa Harris, instructor Barbara Christwitz, Michael Heintz, student Becky Martin and friends.


The award winning Culinary Program will sell lunch and have information available on the “green restaurant” and their recent steps toward a green culinary program.


Activities involving baking with solar ovens, transportation with electric cars and flower planting will also take place.


Some of the groups presenting information in booths are Lake County Sierra Club, Lake County Adubon, Lake County Land Trust, Akeena Solar, David’s Construction, Clearlake Co-op, Discovery Museum, and Shannon Gunier’s business class.
