Earth Day at Vandenberg AFB

Vandenberg Air Force Base hosted its 10th annual Earth Day event on Wednesday. There were lots of activities especially for the kids including a sand pit where youngsters could dig for fossils and plastic dinosaurs.

There was also an inflatable obstacle course for them to climb as well as a climbing wall. In addition, a number of civic and community groups were on hand. Dayle Russell, environmental protection specialist, said, "The overall goal of today's event is really about outreach and education.

Part of the mission of the environmental office on Vandenberg is outreach and education to teach people about what they do directly impacts the environmental that they live work and play in."

Earth Day was sponsored by the 30th Civil Engineer Squadron.
