Catawba College's Environmental Science Program and Center for the Environment will be featured soon on PBS's "Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska."

The TV crew filmed footage on campus in April for the fall program. Urbanska, the host and co-producer, said she and Frank Levering chose to feature Catawba's Center for the Environment because "it offers one of the premiere environmental education programs in the nation in an amazing physical setting – both the green building that houses the center and the adjacent nature preserve."

"What's more, I'm impressed with the degree to which the entire Catawba College community takes environmental education seriously," Urbanska says. "Green teams advise the administration about ways to make the campus environmentally friendly."

The program is scheduled to run on PBS stations across the United States. It will air in North Carolina on UNC-TV Saturday, April 29, at 11:00 a.m.
