The Student Association Environmental Department will begin Earth Week on Monday, a continuing celebration to commemorate Earth Day on Thursday.
"We decided to have [Earth Week] to get people excited about Earth Day so we made it a week-long [event]," said Chris Llop, the head of SA Environmental. "It's interesting to see what amazing things [the world] has out there. It's cool to see what's going on [outside] when we're stuck in our classes."
The events start on Monday night with a special viewing of Planet Earth in the Special Events Field next to Clemens. The episode on Monday is "Deserts and Jungles" and will continue on Wednesday with the episode "Deep Ocean and Caves." Both movies start at 8 p.m.
On Thursday, Earth Day, SA Environmental will host Earth Day 2010 in the Special Events field, the flag room and the Student Union lobby where they will have a recycled art competition, a dunk tank, ultimate Frisbee and many more activities.
Earth Week will conclude with a showing of Avatar at 9 p.m. under the stars on Thursday night in the Special Events field.
