Going Green Matters a BIG Success
More than a 1,000 visitors attended our environmental fair! Thanks to our generous sponsors, our many exhibitors, and more than 120 local volunteers, guests were able to explore more than 100 exhibits at the beautiful Michigan Shores Club. Highlights included the giant, walk-in GeoSphere presented by The Geographic Society of Chicago, the “Environmental Graphiti” art exhibit, the electric and hybrid car show and the many student exhibits and Eco-Zone tables. Many thanks to the Village of Wilmette, the Wilmette Park District and the Michigan Shores Club.
