Ninth annual Earth Fair attracts local families

Organizations came together to promote environmental protection programs.

Numerous local groups had exhibits at the annual Earth Fair at the Myrick Park center in La Crosse.

Local groups were on display, showing families how they can live environmentally friendly lives in the community.

The event has grown substantially over the years, now filling up a large portion of Myrick Park.

Organizers say it’s encouraging to see so many people interested in the environment.

“People do actually care about the environment, they want to come and learn about things that we’re presenting today and have a fun time,” said Erica Black, co-chair of the Earth Fair.

Over 100 organizations were represented during the event.
