Annual Leap for Green Sustainability Fair: Saturday, April 1


Mar 21, 2017 - Mercer Island's Leap for Green community sustainability fair is just around the corner on Saturday, April 1, at the Community Center, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Come join in the fun!

The event began in 2008 to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) by promoting environmental practices and activities for kids and adults, and to raise general awareness of local sustainability resources.

Children's activities include nature-based programs, arts and crafts, educational exhibits, live science demonstrations, petting zoo, story hour, and a chance to meet Leap, our frog mascot.

The fair also offers adults and parents various conservation and sustainability materials, birding tours, green gardening tips, electric vehicle & low-emissions vehicle showcase, transit and bicycling information, and more.
 
Every year a variety of food vendors rounds out the offerings, along with a live band. The event is held rain or shine, with many activities indoors, and most outdoor booths under tents.

This year we are once again giving away Leap for Green badges to the kids, the City's popular reusable shopping bags, countertop food scraps bins for composting, as well as other items.
