Energy City Insights - GreenStep Cities Virtual State Fair 

Many of us in Minnesota are missing the State Fair this year. In years past, Elk River staff have participated in the Eco Experience at the Great Minnesota Get-Together as part of the GreenStep Cities program. Elk River has been a part of this program since 2010, which is a voluntary challenge, assistance, and recognition program to help cities achieve their sustainability and quality-of-life goals. Since the fair won’t be taking place in 2020 in the traditional sense, GreenStep has created a video series highlighting Elk River, and numerous other cities, previously featured at the Eco Experience sharing their sustainability accomplishments and future goals.

Check out the video below highlighting Elk River’s involvement with GreenStep Cities and how we are energized by sustainability in our community.
