The County Fair is August 8th-16th. Will you be there?

The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair offers a great opportunity to have fun and learn. Where else can you see pig races, Chainsaw Carver demonstrations, learn all about bees, buy award winning bake goods and visit educational booths?

As a bonus you can visit us! The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection will two tents at the fair: one for our Solid Waste Services Division and another for our Division of Watershed Restoration and the Office of Sustainability.  The tents will be near the Chilly Mall and the 4-H Tent.

The Department of Environmental Protection booths will highlight the County’s different environmental programs, how we can all help protect our waters, new DEP educational programs, and how you can get involved.

In addition, we will have information on recycling, what you can do at home to save energy, the importance of trees, FrogWatch and geocaching.  On certain days, you can even meet members of local groups helping to protect the environment or see stream animals live, including DEP’s resident frog.

Overall, we are very excited to be gearing up to participate and look forward to seeing you there!
