“See how people, just like you, are giving new life to old items that would otherwise have been lost in a landfill. Come out and be amazed at the artists’ creations, join your kids in expressing their “green side” by creating their own Eco-Art, or just relax and listen to some wonderful music (warning… tapping your feet or dancing may occur). There will also be all sorts of helpful information on how you can help improve Clark County’s environment. Can’t wait to see you there!”
