(WBNG Binghamton) Broome Community College plans a hike to the tallest mountain in New York State.

On May 15, Broome Community College is hiking Mt. Marcy as a team to bring greater awareness to the BCC Environmental Science program.

Many faculty, staff, and departments came together to help create and collaborate on the new and exciting program.

In addition, along the hike samples will be taken, and a few science experiments will be conducted.

Nature provides a wealth of learning opportunities and inspiration.

BCC believes learning can be achieved everywhere and everyday...including on top of a mountain that's 5344 feet in the air!
