Humboldt State Participates in Global Climate March

Humboldt State University will join a global climate march Sept. 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. on the HSU campus.

The event will include a declaration signing, guest speakers and discussions related to the environment and climate change. Participants will begin marching at 1:30 p.m. to show solidarity with the Sept. 21 People’s Climate March in New York City.
