The first-ever Woodbury Environmental Fair is taking place Saturday, Sept. 26 at Central Park. The free event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is sponsored by the city’s Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) and Sustainability Committee, both citizen advisory groups.
The fair will include informational booths, children’s activities and entertainment, and a variety of workshops – all with an environmental focus.
Stafford Library will join in the fun, offering story time at 11:30 a.m. and also featuring a display of environmentally-themed books inside the library. Two children’s “Enviro-Shows,” starring Tricia & The Toonies, will take place in the park’s amphitheater at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
The event will feature green household products and participants can try out the “energy bike” to see how much power it takes to light up a compact fluorescent bulb versus an incandescent light bulb. Numerous displays and booths will offer information on topics ranging from indoor environments to water conservation to green building and remodeling.
In addition to the city of Woodbury, sponsors include Washington County, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the Audubon Society.
