EDST's Annual Earth Fest: http://www.myedst.org/earth.html
The EMC will once again attend the annual Earth Fest sponsored by Earth Day Southern Tier.
Earth Fest is one of the longest-running celebrations of Earth Day in the nation and a respected Southern Tier institution.
Earth Fest draws over 3,000 visitors and each year. As such, sponsors and participants can expect exposure to a wide audience, recognition as a green community member and numerous networking possibilities. This year, as always, we look forward to adding additional opportunities for education and fun at Earth Fest. Please share your ideas with us!
