RALEIGH - The N.C. Department of Transportation's Roadside Environmental Unit will be on hand at the 2012 N.C. State Fair in Raleigh Oct. 11-21 to educate visitors about roadside environmental programs. Fairgoers are encouraged to visit the unit's booth, located in the Flower Show by the Village of Yesteryear, to learn more about the state's litter prevention initiatives, wildflower and daylily programs, stormwater management, rest areas and Scenic Byways program.
The booth will have litter prevention materials including Swat-A-Litterbug cards and stickers, activity sheets and "No Litter" bumper stickers. Teachers are able to sign up for additional litter prevention educational materials for the classroom at the booth's teacher materials window. Classroom materials include pencils, litter prevention and stormwater worksheets, litter law fliers and temporary tattoos.
In addition, Scenic Byways guides and Wildflower Program promotional items such as the "Go Wild" wildflower screensavers and planting guide, t-shirts, sweatshirts and seed packets will be available in return for a donation to the NCDOT Wildflower Program.
