CCC to host Environmental Trade Fair
The exhibitors will discuss the many ways their activities or businesses are connected with the environment.
Gary Henry, CCC associate professor of environmental science and technology, introduced the Environmental Trade Fair to the college last year.
Henry is a hydrogeologist who did environmental consulting before he joined the staff at Clinton.
The event is paid for by the CCC Earth Day Committee, Henry said, with professors, staff and students collecting cans throughout the year so refunds can be used for this activity.
A few days later, the City of Plattsburgh will take its turn with a lineup of Earth Day exhibitors.
From noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 22, the city hosts the Discover Service and Earth Day Festival on the U.S.
