Have you been to the Green NC exhibit yet? That’s the large, unassuming white tent located near Gate 11. It’s the only place on the fairgrounds where you can participate in a chemistry experiment, “fish” in a State Park pond and see solar panels all in one location.
Not to mention earn a cool T-shirt.
That’s right, we are giving away 2009 State Fair T-shirts over here, but there’s a small catch — you’ll need to learn a little. The Green NC exhibit is one of many educational experiences on the fairgrounds. Visitors can interact with environmental organizations, learn about “green” topics through hands on activities and participate in a Green Pledge Scavenger Hunt. You can learn about sustainable agriculture, water quality and conservation, recycling, alternative fuels and eco-friendly living.
Scavenger hunt participants will attend a Green NC stage show, answer environmental questions and make “green” pledges, and as a reward for exploring ways to make North Carolina a little greener, you’ll earn a T-shirt!
I hope you’ll come by and visit us. The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. each day. Check out this video tour of the exhibit to learn more.
