Mount Vernon Environmental Expo returns to the crowds

The National Park Service has organized a large exhibit on native plants.

Alexandria, VA – Mount Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck recently held his fourth Environmental Expo at Fort Hunt Park in cooperation with the National Park Service, an event designed to combine learning and fun. From the looks of the happy crowd, this goal has been achieved. Attendees were able to see reptiles, learn how to cook with solar power, meet representatives from various environmental groups, and dance and sing on stage with Billy B. There were over 35 exhibits offering information and samples.
