Go Green at Euclid’s First Eco-Friendly Fair on June 9th
Do you want to plant your yard with native species?
Do you want to learn about our watersheds?
Do you have an interest in sustainable energy?
Do you compost or recycle – or want to learn how to start?
Do you pick up litter? Do you love Lake Erie?
If you answered “yes!” to any of the above questions, you should definitely come to the City of Euclid’s first Eco-Friendly Fair at Euclid City Hall on Saturday, June 9th from 10am to 1pm. This free event is presented by Keep Euclid Beautiful and will offer something for everyone – whether you are just beginning to set up a garden with native plants or are already a master recycler (yes that’s a thing and the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District will tell you more!). Whether you live in an apartment or own a home, all Euclid residents can make a difference and improve the health of our environment.
The event features presentations, workshops, interactive table displays for kids and adults. A featured workshop is Rain Barrel building with the Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District. Meet the new Euclid Creek Watershed Program Manager, Elizabeth Hiser, who will teach participants how to harvest stormwater. While the workshop is free to attend and listen (just like all the other programs at the Eco-Friendly Fair), if you want a rain barrel, you must pre-register at http://www.cuyahogaswcd.org/events/2018/06/09/rain-barrel-workshop--euclid. Rain barrels cost $60. BUT, the first 10 registrants who live in the City of Euclid in the NEORSD service area GET A FREE RAIN BARREL! Please register by phone if you think you qualify at 216-524-6580x1002.
Learn best practices from local organizations including the Cuyahoga County Department of Sustainability, City of Cleveland Water, Urban Renaissance Farms, Friends of Euclid Creek, Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District, Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District, Gardenscapes by Joanna, LLC, Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt-A-Beach, Drink Local Drink Tap, Bike Euclid, Bluestone Heights, Rust Belt Riders, and Cleveland Metroparks.
