Catawba Center for Environment on PBS Program

You will enjoy this show (see below) since it combines simple living and sustainable living. The Center at Catawba College is breathtaking; it is the first and best green educational building on the east coast. Wanda Urbanska continues to explicate the meanings of simple living. Remember, she is also part of the Levering family of Levering Orchards in Virginia where many of you go to pick your own fruit!


The Center for the Environment at Catawba is an excellent environmental education program. And the show, "Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska," is putting out a very compelling message. This will be well worth watching; this Sunday, Oct. 30th, at 6 pm UNC-TV. Enjoy!

Watch for Catawba Center for Environment on PBS Program

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

The TV crew filmed footage on campus in April for the fall program. Ms. 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,” she 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 Sunday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m. and on WTVI-TV Saturday, Nov. 5, at 4:30 p.m. Those living outside North Carolina may contact their local PBS station and request the date and time of “Simple Living” Program No. 205.

We hope you’ll make every effort to view it. We also hope you’ll encourage the students and teachers in your area to watch it as well.
