The Youth Advisory Committee, in cooperation with the Environmental Board and Park Board, will host Green-a-thon 2017 as way to raise awareness of environmental issues that affect the citizens of Portage and to provide opportunities to become more ecologically friendly. Providing a forum for such opportunities is a critical step to ensuring a sense of social responsibility in participating and encouraging “green” behavior.
This family-friendly Earth Day festival is open to all and includes exhibits, games and giveaways such as seedlings. Food will be available for purchase. Numerous local vendors and organizations will be present.
Organizations and businesses are invited to participate in this event as a way to promote themselves as environmentally conscious, provide Portage residents with an opportunity to be friendlier to the environment and educate people on the importance of "going green." There is no charge to participate or attend. A limited number of tables and chairs are available for use though exhibitors are encouraged to bring their own.
For further information or questions, please contact Adam Herringa, Deputy City Clerk, at 269-329-4512 or by email. Please complete the following form if you are interested in setting up a booth.
