JACKSON, Wyo. — For nearly twenty years the Jackson EcoFair, hosted by Energy Conservation Works (ECW), has celebrated environmental stewardship and featured sustainability-oriented booths, live music, local food, demonstrations, kids’ activities, recycling education, and more. For the second year in a row we are not gathered together on the 2nd Saturday in May, but each and every one of us can still take action towards simple and sustainable living in the Tetons!
As we will not all convene in person this year, we’re inviting the community to join us in the following this EcoFair week:
- Education and engagement every Thursday for five weeks in our multipart EcoTalks series
- Hands-on service and stewardship in support of the annual Spring Clean-up
- Action through our five-week EcoFair Community Sustainability Challenge
- Recognition and celebration of leadership as we invite nominations for the 2021 ATLAS (Andy Tyson Leadership Award in Sustainability)
“The purpose of this programming is to sustain the EcoFair spirit of supporting sustainability efforts in the Tetons,” say ECW Executive Director Phil Cameron. “We’re engaging our EcoFair patrons through a grassroots community challenge and similar informational opportunities to those they might experience at a booth at EcoFair.”
Partners include AVANT, EcoTour Adventures, Friends of Pathways, Hole Food Rescue, ISWR, Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson Hole Rotary Club, Lower Valley Energy, RRR Business Leaders, Riverwind Foundation, Slow Food in the Tetons, START, Teton Conservation District, Teton County, and the Town of Jackson.
