“We look forward to sharing the work the EGLE does every day to protect our environment and public health, and we’re excited to make our hands-on educational materials available to families and educators across the Upper Peninsula,” said Eileen Boekestein, EGLE’s environmental education coordinator. “Please come visit us to try out activities from our EGLE Lending Station and to learn about Michigan’s environment.”
Last year a record number of people attended the fair. Tickets are available online and onsite.
