Sustainability Council workshop at Altoona

Penn State Altoona's Sustainability Council held its first workshop on Feb. 19. Faculty and staff were introduced to recent changes, new practices, and future initiatives in recycling at the campus. John Frederick, executive director of Blair County's Intermunicipal Relations Committee, spoke briefly and answered questions. A second workshop, Farmer's Markets, will be held March 28 during Common Hour in 138 Hawthorn.

The council is devoted to the sustainable development of the campus and the local community. Penn State Altoona is the first Commonwealth Campus to get a Sustainability Council chartered and the first to receive funding for a sustainable project on campus. It has received interning funding to start an internship program and has an updated website in the works.
