Buffalo Enviro-Fair

On April 20, from 11am to 2pm Buffalo’s Enviro-Fair will be held in Niagara Square. This is the six year anniversary of an event that brings together environmental organizations throughout the region. It’s a chance for green-minded groups to show off what makes them special. It’s also a chance for the community to meet a few of the progressive leaders in the field and ask a few questions regarding their programs and efforts. Among the exhibitors will be Fresh Air Fund, PUSH Green, Buffalo in Bloom, Heart for Animals, Re-Tree WNY, Viridian Green Energy, NY State Department of Environmental Conservation, Buffalo’s new recycling program, the Buffalo Animal Shelter and Cornell Cooperative Extension (presenting energy saving tips throughout the home, with their free NYSERDA program).

This a chance to gain more knowledge of local and national trends and practices. It’s an opportunity to talk to multiple groups that do not often present together. As for the exhibitors, this is the perfect opportunity to talk to the public and gain support for local projects. We all see the Buffalo in Bloom signs in gardens throughout the city… have you ever had a nagging question regarding the effort? What about the City’s recycling program? I know that I’ve got a few questions that I would like to ask. I would also think that this event would attract potential environmental groups that would like to have a booth in coming years. If so, why not head down and see what it’s all about?
