EcoFest 2013

Thursday, March 28, and Saturday, March 30

EcoFest is a conference about the importance of choosing to live after a “green” fashion and conserving for the sake of the environment and all it sustains – that means you and I. On Thursday, March 28, Tulsa Community College welcomes guest speakers Jared Carlson (the Arbor Day Foundation), Joe L. Howell (Howell & Vancuren) and Marty Matlock (University of Arkansas) to engage audiences with perspectives on human societies and sustainable environments. It sounds so clinical, but a series of student presentations reveal how ecology affects aspects of our lives from energy resources to children’s literature. Events are 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on the Northeast Campus, 3727 E. Apache St. Fun awaits all at the campus on Saturday, March 30, with a festival of free food, camel rides, live music, cooking preparation, wagon rides, children’s activities and presentations on composting and other practices. Festival is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Find the details on www.tulsacc.edu.ecofest.
