Celebrate Earth Day With Dallas College

Last updated on September 29, 2021

Last year’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day was muffled by the quarantine restrictions. This year, Dallas College is making up for it with fun and informative Earth Day events. 

Dallas College begins its celebration one day early, on April 21 at 3 p.m., with a live, drive-in concert in the North Lake Campus parking lot featuring Vocal Trash. Vocal Trash is described as “Music with a message: Think … before you throw it away!” Join this green-minded ensemble for its catchy jam on Wednesday.

At 4 p.m. on April 22, Earth Day, student Ferdinando Castro Gonzalez will host the Instagram Live event “51st Anniversary of Earth Day — Young Leaders Promoting Sustainability Around the World.” The event’s student panelists are:

  • Ramsey Cook, environmental engineering major and sustainable cities minor, Georgia Tech 
  • Olivia Brookshire, nutrition major and health studies minor, Texas Woman’s University 
  • Anna Bartholomew, sustainability solutions master’s program, Arizona State University 
  • Oriana Silva, chemistry and French major, Dallas College and University of North Texas

Dallas College’s commitment to sustainability does not begin and end with Earth Day but is a year-round focus. We are pleased to announce that Dallas College will be the title sponsor for a new, monthly live program called “Green Source on the Air.”

The live show kicks off on Earth Day at 6 p.m. Programming will include current and local environmental topics and guests hosted by Green Source DFW Director Wendel Withrow. Visit the week of April 19 for invitation and log on details. The show will include live interviews and audience Q&A.

Dallas College students, staff and faculty are invited to pitch their environmentally themed announcements and show ideas to Wendel Withrow ( or GSDFW editor Julie Thibodeaux (
