Cal State San Bernardino's Palm Desert Campus will host its annual Environmental and Sustainability Expo for local students next month, a campus spokesman said Tuesday.

Pamela Clute, who lectures on education and mathematics at UC Riverside, will speak on May 8 to start the expo and, on May 9, students can learn about working in "green" fields from various organizations, according to campus spokesman Mike Singer.

Students from the Palm Springs Unified School District also will screen their environment-related digital films on both days, and attendees can tour the Health Sciences Building, which is LEED gold certified, one of the highest ratings available from the U.S. Green Building Council.
