Interested in composting, installing a wind turbine, purchasing a hybrid vehicle, water-efficient landscaping or building an energy efficient home? You'll find an expert to answer these questions at the 2012 Laramie Conservation Expo. The free event will take place on Saturday, February 25, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Albany County Fairgrounds Activity Center.

In addition to the exhibitors, there will be discussion panels and door prizes. Lunch will be available for purchase and kids are welcome.

The first discussion panel will be from 9:30-11 am and will be all about alternative energy. The second discussion panel will focus on local foods and will take place from 11:30 am-1 pm. Both panel discussions will be held in the west end of the Fairgrounds building.

More than 45 exhibitors representing business, government, non-profits and home practitioners will provide information on ways to conserve energy, water and other resources in your home or business. Vendors will display products to help with landscaping, green building, alternative energy, alternative transportation, recycling and environmental education. Government and non-profits will explain their services.

The expo is sponsored by the Laramie Rivers Conservation District and the University of Wyoming's Environment and Natural Resources Program. For more information call (307)721-0072, visit or listen below to Tony Hoch and Liz Harvey's interview from Laramie Live.
