Green Oakland Fair is going to be the first annual fair emphasizing the importance of going green in Oakland County, Michigan. I have collaborated with my county's Conservation District to make this ground breaking event happen. Saturday April 19th is their Annual Spring Tree Sale Pick up date, which also happens to be the weekend before Earth Day. We decided to work together and take advantage of the near 500 Oakland County residents that will be picking up their trees and spread the green message. The fair's main objective is to attract Oakland County families to come and learn about natural resource management, available programs and events for adults and children and available "Green resources" for residents. There will be various booths set up by local green organizations, for example, the local Sierra Club Chapter will have an interactive energy saving model at their booth. I have been contacting local green companies to come and demonstrate how to make everyday living changes in order to "Go green." I hope to use the available grant money to create promotional materials for the event such as t-shirts, stickers and balloons to make the event as festive as possible. We are also going to have contests at the different booths and I hope to be able to have trees to give away to the winners.
