Weigh in on current green practices such as recycling, landfill mining, and the use of renewable energy. Over time we discover that being green does not always measure up as science and standards evolve. This exhibit will feature hands-on components and local environmental practices. Exhibit opens on Friday, March 7th and will remain on display until Saturday, August 30th. Admission is free! This exhibit is partially made possible by students from the Northern Illinois University Museum Studies program.
