The Mt. Washington Valley Green Team is set to present its second annual Family Funergy Festival, set this year for Saturday, Sept. 24, at Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway,NH, just south of Jackson, NH with a full slate of kid-friendly activities and green living exhibits and demonstrations running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This free event is a family friendly, hands-on investigation of energy and resource conservation.
In addition to exhibits and demonstrations featuring alternative energy, energy conservation, and other environmentally friendly themes, the day’s events are set to include such activities as making s’mores in a solar oven, investigating layers of soil in a soil pit, and fun, exploration games for younger kids.
The event is also set to feature the Nike Sneaker Fling, in which participants can bring in their old sneakers for recycling, try their hand at the sneaker toss, and learn how sneakers can be recycled into such things as gymnasium floors.
A committee of the Mt. Washington Valley Preservation Association in affiliation with the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Mt. Washington Valley Green Team was developed to act as a catalyst to facilitate, educate, promote, and encourage sustainable green business practices that will lead to positive, measurable business, community, and environmental results.
