Stop by the EcoExperience at the Minnesota State Fair


Don’t forget to visit the Eco Experience at the State Fair, August 21-September 1, 2014! The 2013 winner of the State Fair People’s Choice Award for Best Attraction, the Eco Experience is filled with hands-on activities, demonstrations, and resources to help Minnesotans become more knowledgeable about the environment and about ways of acting to support healthy ecosystems.

The Eco Experience’s air quality exhibits feature:

  • Electric vehicles (EVs) including a Tesla Model S and a Nissan LEAF, along with info about public EV charging stations and details about the how and why of recharging EVs with renewable energy, such as solar. EV owners will be on hand to tell you about their experiences with a variety of models.
  • Free tire gauges will be available at an exhibit about the Living Green tire-check promotion that runs through September 30. Take a photo of yourself checking your tire pressure, post it to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter between August 21-September 30, and you’ll be entered to win a $100 gas card donated by Holiday.
  • Information about the pollution impacts of urban back-yard campfires
  • Sign up online for the MPCA’s Air Quality alerts
