Celebrate Earth Day 2013 at Evergreen Lake
The 24th AnnualMountain Area Earth Day Fair will be the feature event in a nearly month long Countdown To Earth Day celebration which will encompass a series of varying events and activities including the festivities at the Lake House. This year’s themes of Earth, Water, Air and Spiritwill tie all events around the heart of the matter: “Our Earth, Our Chance”, our mountain communities’ new recurring event series to look forward to annually.
Join us at the 2013 Mountain Area Earth Day Fair from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, April 20 at the Evergreen Lake House, 29614 Upper Bear Creek Road. Free parking and a shuttle will be available. Admission will be free to all ages. Donations will be encouraged.
Growing since 1990 and now one of the largest and most popular Earth Day celebrations in Colorado, the fair regularly features over 50 federal, state, and local agencies, nonprofit organizations and businesses. Up-to-date information on critical issues will be available for open discussions and to take home. As the festival’s traditional mainstay, HawkQuest will again present its live raptors. Local high school students have taken on various planning and hosting tasks. Middle school groups are planning improvisational performances. The Café @ The Place will cater to everyone’s taste and together - organizers, exhibitors, caterer and guests - the entire event will strive to achieve EAS+Y’s Gold level Zero Waste Certification.
While you are at Evergreen Lake, be sure to visit the historic Boat House, home to the Evergreen Nature Center which is operated by Evergreen Audubon. The Nature Center‘s 2013 Season Opening Day will coincide with the fair’s festivities and offer numerous children’s activities.
