A Statement Released by Re-Tree WNY: A Program of Keep WNY Beautiful
BUFFALO, NY The sixth annual Buffalo Enviro-Fair will be celebrating Earth Day with booths from area eco-organizations in front of City Hall on Friday, April 20th, with their traditional offer to not-for-profits to exhibit at no charge.
“We strive for a great, diverse Fair and don’t want any organization that legitimately is green and unable to pay for a booth to be left out of the Enviro-Fair,” stated Paul D. Maurer, Chairman of the event.
The event started in 2007 as the area was planning their first volunteer tree plantings with a visit from Al Gore at the University of Buffalo. The first Buffalo Enviro-Fair was held before and during Gore’s speech on global warming at UB Alumni Arena. Since then, the event has been held every year in Niagara Square.
