Daytona State College To Hold Free Earth Day Celebration

By on April 13, 2017 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – Daytona State College (DSC) is holding a free and open-to-the-public Earth Day Celebration that will include a painted rock hide-and-seek.

The celebration will be held on Wednesday, April 19, from 11 AM to 1 PM, at the Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd.

“This will be an exciting event that will help promote kindness to our planet,” says Lori Lemoine, a representative of DSC’s Office of Co-Curricular Activities. “We’re thrilled to support a hobby that has rocked Volusia County and other parts of the country, where students will launch #DaytonaStateRocks by decorating rocks and secretly placing them around campus for later discovery by avid collectors.”

This year, the theme is conservation and sustainability. Food, vendors and music at the event will reflect the theme. Several booths for DSC clubs and student organizations will also be present to help educate attendees on:

  • recycling cell phones
  • decreasing energy consumption
  • composting
  • environmentally-friendly homemade beauty products
  • cleaners and pesticides
  • decreasing water consumption
  • planting trees and wildflowers
  • solar power
  • urban farming, and more.
