This year’s EnviroFair will occur on Earth Day, April 22, at Caldwell Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the EnviroFair, attendees can learn ways to help improve the environment at work, home, and school, and connect with community members and organizations working to make the Portneuf Valley a wonderful place to live.
