DePauw students share experiences from Costa Rica at PCPL event

Friday, April 24, 2009

Putnam County Public Library will host "From Trash to Treasure: Sustainable Development in Costa Rica" at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

DePauw students, who traveled to Costa Rica to help in sustainable development projects with Sea Turtles, will present a slide show.

While in Costa Rica, the students discovered a remarkable re-using of resources by local women. Lauren Schaefer, along with several other students, will show some of the material goods produced by Costa Ricans.

From the students' experiences there, they will describe the state of Costa Rica, as well as bring sustainability closer to home with a discussion of local initiatives that reduce our impact on the environment.
