MCCC Lecture on April 25 Focuses on Environmental Preservation

4/12/12


 

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host a public lecture on environmentally friendly practices at Mercer County Community College’s West Windsor campus on Wednesday, April 25, at noon in the Communications Building, room 109.  The talk is part of the college’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

Marc Rogoff, environmental education specialist at DEP, will discuss how the community can help protect the environment for future generations by explaining “friendly” and “unfriendly” practices that affect our natural surroundings.  Using up-to-date statistics and a bit of humor, Rogoff will give an interactive PowerPoint presentation entitled, “Environmental Protection, What You Can Do! . . . More or Less.”

According to Rogoff, “Some common habits that we all share affect the environment.  Some of these are environmentally beneficial and some are detrimental.” A former teacher and museum educator, Rogoff manages multiple award-winning education websites and the DEP's Speakers Program; works with the NJ Commission on Environmental Education, and assists schools with outdoor classroom development.  Prior to working at the DEP, he also served on a wilderness rescue squad with the National Park Service.

The recipient of the New Jersey Audubon Society’s 2012 Excellence in Environmental Education award, Rogoff currently serves on the National Wildlife Federation's Educator Advisory Group and has served as a consultant to NASA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the American Museum of Natural History, Liberty Science Center, the New Jersey Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, the New Jersey Departments of Education and Agriculture, and a science-themed toy store in New York.

The lecture is free and open to the public.  For more information on this and other events at Mercer, click here.  Additional information on the NJDEP can be found here.
