CSUMB Earth Week



Did you know? The first earth day was April 22, 1970. It was founded by Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, and was inspired by the Anti-War actions of students. Students have long been the leaders of the environmental movement, as Mr. Nelson had designed. So, it’s no wonder that forty-six years later, the students at CSUMB celebrate by hosting EarthFest- a week long celebration of the earth. The entire week is built with sustainability education and fun in mind.


Due to the CFA strike there will not be any events happening.
