What an amazing day! As part of the Green Alliance, Laudato Si’ Project helped plan Saturday’s Sustainability Fair at Lapham Peak. We were blessed with great weather and 500+ people were able to discover, connect, and engage with how to live more sustainably.
Laudato Si’ Project created a Nature Discovery Zone to engage visitors with the natural world, impart a sense of wonder, and encourage them to live lighter on the Earth. So many great conversations took place about connecting faith with Care for Creation. Laudato Si’ Project also gave a presentation on “Planting Native Prairie” and our volunteers led 2 guided activities: “Beginning Birding” and “Prairie Bugs Kids Hike.” Thanks to all our amazing volunteers for helping make this event such a success!
With over 40 vendors and exhibitors at the fair, people of all ages could explore sustainability topics ranging from recycling to land conservation. 30 presentations happened throughout the day and over 10 guided activities.
If we approach nature and the environment without this openness to awe and wonder… our attitude will be that of masters, consumers and ruthless exploiters. -Pope Francis, Laudato Si
