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 series is sponsored by SMC’s Center for Environmental and Urban Studies, SMC Office of Public Programs and the SMC Associates, a private organization that funds speakers and special programs on campus. 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. SMC has been offering courses in environmental and urban studies since fall 2001.
