PNNL – Second Nature: Sustainability in Action
Make every day Earth Day!
On April 25, our commitments to improving the environment and fostering the next generation of scientists and engineers come together to take center stage as the Lab celebrates Earth Day and Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day. It’s a special way to show our young people what we “grown-ups” do at work all day, including learning about ways to help preserve the environment for future generations.
Leading by example, we can all celebrate our progress and impacts, and renew our commitment to “stepping lightly on the earth” on April 25 and every day. For more information about the event, please contact Jessica Beck 509-375-3869.
