FREE RECYCLING will take place as originally planned at Central School.

In addition to exhibitor displays, the Eco-Zone, and our recycling event, we will feature Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s (SOM)  stunning and educational displays developed for the Great Lakes Century Vision Plan. Inspired by the centennial of Burnham’s Plan of Chicago in 2009, SOM began a 100-year “call to vision” that outlines measures to protect the lake system and promote sustainable development in the 21st century.

Going Green Matters draws more than 1,100 residents, neighbors, elected officials, water experts, exhibitors and volunteers.  The latest hybrid and electric cars, cooking demonstrations, water displays, recycling (at Central School) and the ever popular interactive Eco-Zone make this a wonderful event for the entire family.
