SMC To Present Environmental Lecture Series Beginning Feb. 28:

Santa Monica College’s spring “Environmental Issues Lecture Series” – encompassing topics such as environmental psychology and global ecological activism – begins Tuesday, Feb. 28 with “Sustainable Works Grows for You.”

All lectures are at 6:30 p.m. in Room 263 of the Humanities & Social Science Building on the main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd.. They are free and seating is on a first-arrival basis.

The center – which is open to the public – features displays, a library and information center, video collection, native garden, and other services and activities related to environmental and urban studies.
