Get Excited About Climate Change




The 11th annual Going Green Matters community fair will take place from noon to 4 p.m., March 12, at the Michigan Shores Club, in Wilmette, sponsored by Go Green Wilmette. Enjoy an afternoon of fun activities for all ages and leave inspired to help reduce climate change. 

         The theme of the 2017 fair, One People One Planet, is anchored by the Geographic Society of Chicago’s impressive 20-foot-diameter GeoSphere. Highlights include guided visits inside the GeoSphere, the latest “green” cars, an Environmental Graffiti art exhibit, national and regional environmental organization exhibitors, a native plant sale, raffle and more.

         The fair provides a family-friendly opportunity to ride an “energy bike” and check out the latest LED lighting, learn about landscaping options for stormwater management and healthy gardens, and find out about locally sourced food, active transportation, new bicycles and new places to ride them. Attendees can learn about local nature preserves and ask questions about home energy savings, green initiatives in their communities and sample green personal care and cleaning products.

Admission is free. Location: 911 Michigan Ave., Wilmette. For more information, visit GoingGreenMatters.org. See ad on page 47.
