BIKE, WALK OR BUS TO LCC ON EARTH DAY - APRIL 22

Some of the 2014 participantsEUGENE, Ore. - The Sustainability Committee at Lane Community College encourages students and staff to walk, ride their bike or take the bus together to the 30th Avenue Campus on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22.

Those who are interested can choose from two gathering times: 7:00 a.m. or 9:00 a.m. Participants should meet at the Amazon Station Park & Ride on 29th Avenue and Amazon Parkway in Eugene. Walkers and bicyclists are encouraged to wear safety vests or bright colors if they have them. Participants will be treated to light refreshments at the end of the event and will have the option to enter into a raffle.

The Sustainability Committee has chosen to host this event, in its second year, because transportation is responsible for 28 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and 87 percent of the emissions at Lane according to the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment. This event will offer great exercise for participants, a lot of fun and it will promote sustainable transportation to our campus and the larger community.
