Portneuf Valley’s 2023 Environmental Fair

The Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair. is held on or around Earth Day every year. This year’s fair was held on April 22 at Caldwell Park and included live music, free food, and over 75 booths representing local organizations, businesses, and government entities. Emma took a field trip to the Environmental fair, and together Jessa and her listened to the community’s responses to a variety of questions.

The Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair occurs annually as a celebration of Earth Day. According to the Environmental Fair website: “At the EnviroFair, attendees can learn ways to help improve the environment at work, home, and school, and connect with community members and organizations working to make the Portneuf Valley a wonderful place to live!” The 2023 EnviroFair hosted over 75 different booths. On average, over 4,000 people attend this free event, and Emma had the opportunity to interview some of these attendees right on the ground. Asking a variety of questions, each participant, whether a local, college student, or both, expressed what sustainability looks like in our local community.
