Earth Week Exhibits @ the Science Library

Celebrate Earth Week 2008 by exploring several exhibits that promote conservation, sustainability, recycling, alternative energy sources and transportation. These exhibits will be on display in the UCR Science Library lobby from April 21, 2008 through the end of the spring quarter.

The Community Through Your Lens
features photographs from the UCR Earth Week photo competition which asked photographers to capture examples of sustainability in the community, giving community members a chance to give sustainability a face in their own vision. This event is sponsored by The Chancellor's Committee on Sustainability and UCR Environmental Health and Safety. The competition was open to all students, staff and faculty on the UCR & Palm Desert campuses.
