Laramie Conservation Expo Offers Ways to Conserve Water and Energy


February 4, 2013 — “Watershed,” Robert Redford’s new film about the threats to the Colorado River Basin, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, at the University of Wyoming’s Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center auditorium.

The film follows a 30-minute reception to launch the 2013 Laramie Conservation Expo scheduled Saturday, Feb. 9, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Albany County Fairgrounds Activity Center. Free and open to the public, the film and expo are sponsored by the Laramie Rivers Conservation District, the Wyoming Conservation Corps, the Environment and Natural Resources Student Club and the UW Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.

The Laramie Conservation Expo promotes a responsible conservation ethic in the community by helping citizens learn about tools and methods to conserve water, energy and other resources. Participants can learn about such practices as composting, growing your own food, installing a wind turbine, purchasing a hybrid vehicle, water-efficient landscaping or building an energy-efficient home. More than 60 exhibitors, representing business, government, nonprofits and home practitioners, will give demonstrations and answer questions.

Vendors will display products to help with landscaping, green building, alternative energy, alternative transportation, recycling, local foods and environmental education. Government agencies and local nonprofits will explain their services. Experts will give presentations on smart energy choices, local foods and other topics.

For more information, call (307) 721-0072 or visit www.lrcd.net  or www.uwyo.edu/enr/upcoming-events.
