April 22 is Earth Day, and what better time to celebrate KAUST's mission of sustainability?
From KAUST Discovery: "All community members are invited to gather at Safaa Golf Club to celebrate Earth Day on Thursday, April 25 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This year's theme is "Protect Our Species." We promise an evening filled with fun and environmentally-friendly activities, performances as well as exciting prizes to be won in a raffle draw. Earth Day is a green event; water refilling stations will be provided. So don't forget your water bottle! We encourage you to grab the community shuttle bus (from Tamimi) or other green modes of transport."
The Safaa Golf Course is also a wildlife refuge, home to many species of birds who live in the area, or stop in the oasis of green on their way through the region.
