Sustainability Fair Coming To Nicolet College On Earth Day

Northwoods Sustainability Group

The 9th annual Sustainability Fair at Nicolet College in Rhinelander is set for April 22.

The fair is the effort of the Northwoods Sustainability Group, and offers a wide variety of exhibitors, workshops, discussions and talks, foods from organic farms and student projects. Many businesses and organizations with a focus on sustainability will be there.

Spokesperson Ann Eshelman says this year the theme is 'Here's Looking At You, Kid'...

"...This year we decided to concentrate on kids and the reason being the last two years Earth Day has fallen on a Monday and some of our people on our steering committee are educators and they're real excited about trying to get as many kids to the fair as possible, both as exhibitors and as viewers...."

Eshleman says they're going to have speakers from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. speaking about some facet of sustainability relating to kids. A professor of Sustainable Enterprise is the keynote speaker, talking about employability in sustainability fields. Eshleman says exhibitors have always been a central part of the fair. She says half of them are organizations that deal with sustainability projects.

Eshleman says if you're interested in being an exhibitor or want more information, Google Northwoods Sustainability Fair and they have a website or sustainabilitynorthoods at gmail.com or 715-362-4485.
