Albany -- Darton College students celebrate Sunday's Earth Day. Students plant a tree as an environmental symbol.

More than a dozen students, faculty,and the College President planted a tree in front of their administration building Monday afternoon. The pink flowering dogwood tree was surrounded by salvia flowers.

Led by the college's Environmental Awareness Club, this was the first time Darton students have held an earth day ceremony. Club President Porsche Bridges said "it'll bring out some color in all this greenery right here. And it will just be a symbol that Darton is environmentally aware and that we are concerned about what goes on around here."

 Bridges said the Environmental Club currently only had five members, but they believe they will grow in numbers with the many students concerned about the college and their community.
