EcoFair at the Kenosha Public Museum
The Kenosha Public Museum and Gateway Technical College held an EcoFair at the Kenosha Public Museum earlier today.
Eco-friendly automobiles were on display in front of the museum. There were cars from Frank Boucher Volkswagen, Audi and Toyota Carmax, Lynch Chevrolet, and Palmen Buick/GMC/Cadillac. Inside the museum, visitors were able to talk with local organizations including the Eco-Justice Center, UW-Extension Master Gardeners, Carthage College Environmental Science Program, CURE, the City of Kenosha Water Utility, and Eco-Fresh Habitats.
Here are some pictures from the event:
Visitors learned to live more sustainably, reduce their carbon footprint and save valuable natural resources. You could also find out about alternative energy for your home, more fuel-efficient cars, “green” building supplies, urban farming, recycling, composting, and rain gardens.
If you missed the EcoFair, you can still visit the interactive exhibit, “Sustainable Shelter: Dwelling Within the Forces of Nature,” on the second floor, in the West Gallery. That very interesting exhibit will be on display until December 30, 2012.
