New Sustainability Fair Kicks Off Earth Week
The Chippewa Valley Sustainability Fair will include several events throughout Earth Week, April 15–22. This year’s theme is Action, and the fair will offer ways you can take action to address environmental challenges facing the world.
The week will feature a Youth STEAM Fair at the Lismore in downtown Eau Claire. Middle school students will present their projects in all areas of STEAM as well as sustainability, air and water quality, human-environment interaction, and waste management. Open to the public and free.
Another opportunity during the week is the fourth annual Jam It For the Planet, Saturday, April 21, in downtown Eau Claire. Come for the great music and stay for the cause!
This music and educational event celebrates women leaders, as well as Mother Nature, by showcasing the gifts, talents, and abilities of area women who will perform on stage, share in discussions, and lead learning opportunities. The event is family-friendly, with a kids’ interactive music show, an Earth Day superhero meet-and-greet, a kids’ creation station, and much more.
The Jam It series has historically featured a great lineup of musicians performing for Planet Earth. Visit www.jamitfortheplanet.com for more information.
Another week-long effort will be the Week Without Waste challenge. Residents throughout Eau Claire County can pledge to not create any landfill-destined waste during their curbside garbage collection for the entire week.
