Lorain County Community College will celebrate Earth Day with a weekend of earth-centered events on campus.
Artist in residence Donna Drozda will collaborate with participants in this weekend’s events to create art within the Memory Healing Garden in the LCCC Courtyard. Drozda designed the art plan for the garden during a residency last year and will complete the project this month.
