CCEW Banner 2018

An early announcement about our section's participation in Chemists Celebrate Earth Day; we once again hope to have outreach events at the Celery Flats in Portage and at the Kalamazoo Nature Center, and at any other venues where we can have interested volunteers. Note that this outreach event is in its 15th year and has been re-labeled Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW); it will be celebrated April 22-28, 2018, the topic is Oceans and the theme of the publication from the ACS Outreach office will be Dive into Marine Chemistry, which will discuss the chemistry of water from the ocean. The common goal for CCEW, as well as any other activity of our ACS, is to communicate the positive role that chemistry plays in the world.

Are you passionate about educating your community about the environment? If so, then we have the perfect opportunity for you!

KACS is looking for a CCEW Coordinator.
