Yes it is possible to get places without a car! This fair will help support your effort to improve your health and your budget, and the health of your community and planet, by finding alternatives to gas powered cars. Featuring vendors, community agencies, food, music, student clubs and demonstrations.

Wednesday is also Bike to School Day! Use a combination of human powered transit (biking, walking, skateboarding, etc.) and/or public transit and receive a T-shirt and a chance to win prizes! FREE Bike valet parking will be provided from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (after that you can move to the bike racks).

Join us as we pay homage to the ultimate sustainable green machine: the two wheeled, pedal-powered, ever-ready to roll, bicycle!

If you would like to participate as a volunteer, vendor or sponsor in this fair, please contact student coordinator Aisha Garroni, at garrona@flc.losrios.edu or faculty coordinator Professor Marc Olsen, at olsenm@flc.losrios.edu.

Sponsored by the Folsom Lake College Student Eco Club and Student Government!
