Jamestown Business College students celebrate Earth Week

JAMESTOWN – In celebration of Earth Day 2013, students, faculty and staff at Jamestown Business College participated in a variety of activities and service ventures.

Activities throughout the week included the construction of bird houses, a cleanup of local parks, and the planting of seedlings to celebrate Arbor Day.

A portion of the park cleanup was in conjunction with the Chautauqua County Chamber’s efforts for Hands on Jamestown.

JBC Instructor Kathy Reisenweber, who coordinated some activities for the week, said that the students responded well to the planned activities.

“We immediately got buy-in from the students, and they really helped to drive the participation in these activities,” she said.

Jamestown Business College offers business-focused associate and bachelor degrees and certificate programs that include targeted professional development activities.
