The Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) Three-Legged Frog Environmental Club and MCTC Faculty Sustainability Committee invite the MCTC community to attend the 11th Annual Sustainability Fair. The fair, titled “Act Now for the Future,” will host a variety of community environmental organizations, speakers and student clubs to share their expertise, commitment and enthusiasm to inspire greater awareness and action on current environmental issues.

  • Wednesday, April 15
  • 10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
  • T Skyway

The fair will offer educational opportunities on climate change, water conservation, sustainable food, recycling and composting, biodiversity preservation, sustainable transportation and sustainable energy—including solar energy systems. Participants will learn ways to reduce their environmental footprint, and have opportunities to get involved and take action on a variety of environmental issues. They will also learn about options for environmental internships.

The University of Minnesota Raptor Center will return for the fifth year, presenting live raptors, including a bald eagle.

More than 20 environmental and student organizations will be tabling at the fair. The event will provide attendees free pizza with organic ingredients and sodas from a local co-op. There will also be prize drawings, including two free year-long Minnesota State Parks passes.
