Last year’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day was muffled by the quarantine restrictions. This year, Dallas College is making up for it with fun and informative Earth Day events. 

Dallas College begins its celebration one day early, on April 21 at 3 p.m., with a live, drive-in concert in the North Lake Campus parking lot featuring Vocal Trash. Vocal Trash is described as “Music with a message: Think … before you throw it away!” Join this green-minded ensemble for its catchy jam on Wednesday.

At 4 p.m. on April 22, Earth Day, student Ferdinando Castro Gonzalez will host the Instagram Live event “51st Anniversary of Earth Day — Young Leaders Promoting Sustainability Around the World.” The event’s student panelists are:

  • Ramsey Cook, environmental engineering major and sustainable cities minor, Georgia Tech 
  • Olivia Brookshire, nutrition major and health studies minor, Texas Woman’s University 
  • Anna Bartholomew, sustainability solutions master’s program, Arizona State University
