More General Information
GreenLifexpo is an energy exposition.  It stems from the UW-Extension Community Partnership Advisory Group's (CPAG) desire to awaken our community, the surrounding counties, and communities in a 150 mile radius from Jackson County to the importance of taking care of our planet.  The idea germinated from the group's discussion of sustainable living methods appropriate for the family, community and beyond.  Part of our group felt we should promote and support solar panels for our schools as a way of conserving energy; others thought we should have an energy fair.
 
It turned out that theBlack River Falls High School's Black River Area Green School (BRAGS) received grant money from various sources to support solar panels which were erected in 2011.  The fair turned into an exposition, supported by numerous local and state grants and many Jackson County residents.  This exposition had it's start in September of 2011.
 
T oday's exposition is designed to attract visitors from 100 to 150 mile radius and to continue attracting visitors from an 8 county area in West Central Wisconsin (Clark, Eau Claire, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau and Wood).  We anticipate people with common interests, in a sustainable lifestyle, will want to attend and learn how they can become better stewards of the environment.  This year's event will be held at the Milt Lunda Memorial Arena at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Black River Falls, WI.
 
This event is planned around renewable energy, conservation, recycling, and sustainable living exhibits, speakers and tours.
