Earth Day Expo set for April 23
The Alternative Energy Resources Organization (AERO), The Carroll College Environmental Program, Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) will host the 2017 Helena Earth Day Expo this weekend, for the second year in a row.
The Expo will be held outdoors at Carroll College’s Physical Education Center (which will serve as the event’s rain site) on Sunday, April 23 from 11am to 3pm. The Expo will feature more than 40 local organizations, agencies, and businesses, along with food trucks, live music including the local band Dogjam, and workshops throughout including Water Tasting and Watershed Education, Repowering Renewable Energy in Montana, Composting 10, and Underage Democracy: How to Make Environmental Change Before You Can Vote! A full schedule is available at www.aeromt.org/earthday.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Multiple local organizations including Exploration Works and MT Fish Wildlife & Parks’ Montana Wild Education Center will provide a variety of children’s activities. The Expo also offers a unique opportunity to recycle electronics through Helena Industries’ Big Sky E-Recycling Program.
“We’re so thrilled to grow this event with new organizations and activities, while encouraging community engagement and awareness around Earth Day issues in Helena.” says AERO’s Outreach Director Corrie Williamson. “It should be a blast.”
