Local area schools will teach about how to better take care of our Earth with a variety of hands-on activities, and environmental organizations will provide education about important green issues and how we can make a difference. Community agencies will help us live a healthier, more positive life, and green businesses will assist attendees in making changes to their home and workplace.
