WVC at Omak students sponsor Green Fest 2011 on April 22

The third annual Green Fest 2011, “Working on the World to Change,” will feature a variety of activities on sustainable living and environmental issues on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, in Omak. All of the activities are free and open to the public.

Activities take place on the Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) at Omak campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include a morning fun run; presentations on bee keeping, plant graphing, composting and creative recycling; and a feature of Dirt! The Movie. The film is a documentary that uses animation, vignettes, personal accounts and story-telling to reveal man’s historical relationship with dirt.

Music and activities will continue at 5 p.m. at the Omak Civic League Park, with a performance by Ian Dobson’s Pan Leggo, a calypso band.

Participants may bring their eWaste to the festival to be recycled. eWaste includes televisions, computers, monitors, towers and laptops.

Green Fest is a family-friendly community event sponsored by the Associated Students of Wenatchee Valley College at Omak that celebrates greener/eco-friendly living and informs participants on ways they can live more in tune with nature and have fun doing it.
