The 13th annual Earth Day celebration is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today outside of the Base Exchange.
The event will focus on educating Vandenberg men, women and children about the base organizations that continuously demonstrate sustainable and environmentally friendly practices on a daily basis.
The Earth Day event will have informational exhibits, live demonstrations, educational material, and games.
“Earth Day is a great opportunity for the Vandenberg community to learn about a variety of environmental protection and conservation initiatives, and explore new, innovative ways to promote sustainable living and mission accomplishment,” said Brad King, Vandenberg Air Force Base energy manager. “It is also a great chance for the surrounding communities to learn more about Vandenberg’s commitment to environmental stewardship, as well as help us protect our environment for a sustainable future.”
Pacific Gas & Electric Company representatives are scheduled to present Col. Nina Armagno, 30th Space Wing commander, with a check worth nearly $170,000 for conservation savings over the past year at Vandenberg.
