FRIDAY, JUNE 8
Pick up a 5-minute shower timer and pledge to reduce your CO2 emissions with HRWC’s Saving Water Saves Energy project.
Come to the Ann Arbor’s 12th Annual Mayor’s Green Fair!
Meet our H2O Hero and learn about everyday actions that make you a hero too.
Ann Arbor’s Downtown Main Street will be closed to regular automotive traffic, but will be open for walkers and displays of environmental information, “green” products, bicycle events, live music, and general enjoyment of the urban outdoor environment. Information, entertainment, and hands-on activities for all ages will be provided.
Main Street between East Huron and William will host three the Environmental Leaders Area, the Clean Energy Expo and the Green Commute Area.
There will be information and hands-on activities for all ages, such as environmental information and crafts, live birds of prey demonstrations, live music on two stages (amplification provided through solar energy). This year food vendors will sell organic “light fare” on Washington near Main. The Clean Energy Expo will serve as a forum for innovative energy-saving designs and actions, including displays of alternative fuel vehicles, demonstrations of green building materials, solar energy installations, renewable energy installations, and more! And the Green Commute Area will showcase a variety of ordinary and innovative sustainable transportation choices — ranging from AATA’s buses to Zipcars and bikes, including the circumference/conference bike. Valet bike parking will be offered and 826 Michigan will provide great activities for kids.
