Sustainability Events


Bike to Campus Week!!

May 13 to May 17, 2024

WVC Sustainability Committee wants to encourage everyone to use two wheels to get to campus!!  We are having a raffle all week for anyone who rides their bike to campus to win prizes.  Students who need a free bicycle can receive one of the seven bikes we will be giving away at SpringFest on May 15th.  These are refurbished bicycles, that our partner Cashmere Middle School Bike Repair club has offered to us.  This group has given away over 630 repaired bikes in the Valley over the last 7 years. Link Transit will be joining us at Spring Fest to show people how to load their bicycles onto the front of a bus, that way we can bike and bus to work or school.  So many options to help the planet and your health!  

Sustainability events are free. Sponsored by WVC Sustainability Committee, ASWVC, and the QSA.  For more information, please contact WVC Sustainability Coordinator, Joan Qazi,
