DSC students to celebrate Earth Day

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 12, 2017) - Mother Earth takes center stage when Daytona State College clubs and student organizations celebrate Earth Day with hide-and-seek-painted-rocks on Wednesday, April 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the college’s Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd.

“This will be an exciting event that will help promote kindness to our planet,” said Lori Lemoine 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.”

The student groups will set up booths to help raise awareness about such earth-nurturing practices as recycling old cell phones, reducing energy consumption, composting, making environmentally safe beauty products, cleaners and pesticides, reducing water consumption, planting trees and wildflowers, solar power and urban farming, to name just a few.

Music, food and vendors will be on hand, as well, all focused around a theme of conservation and sustainability.

The celebration is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Lemoine, (386) 506-3486 or [email protected]
