When is the last time you raced a Big Wheel? Have you been meaning to start your own vegetable garden? Would you like to learn more about the spirituality of environmentalism?

You will have the opportunity to do all this and more when the Environmental Resource Center,  with the support of the Office of the President’s Sustainability Initiative and Associated Students, hosts Sustainability Week April 18-21.

Events are focused around the goal of bringing sustainability awareness to campus, learning about how our campus is doing its part, and helping individuals develop their own sustainability goals.

The celebration kicks off at noon April 18 outside Clark Hall where ivy will be replaced with native plants. A container gardening workshop will also be held outside Clark Hall at 10:30 a.m. April 20.

A relay race, Bay to Brakes, will take place at 11:00 a.m. April 19 to promote alternative transportation. The event, sponsored by the Bay Area Air Quality Managment District and the Environmental Resource Center, will be held on the Paseo de San Antonio (San Carlos plaza) in front of West (Fourth Street) Garage.

The Earth Day celebration will begin at 10:00 a.m. April 21 along the Paseo de San Carlos between South Fourth Street and El Paseo de Cesar E. Chavez. The celebration will include the presence of over 50 different organizations, live acoustic music from local artists, and a barbecue by Whole Foods.

Also, there will be a Green Careers in Science and Technology Panel in which professionals in the field will be discussing new and exciting careers at 3 p.m. April 21 in ENG 285/287.
