California State Fair Exhibition Highlights Programs

Exhibition at the California State Fair 2011Hundreds of thousands of visitors to the California State Fair are enjoying America's Great Outdoors, showcased in an exhibit staffed by employees of agencies within the U.S. Department of the Interior. The large exhibit at the State Fair, which continues until July 31, is a product of cooperation between the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service.

The exhibit, located in the popular "Discovery Island" portion of the fairgrounds, is high profile, beginning with its 20-foot-long banner.

Displays and activities, for all ages, highlight various aspects of the America's Great Outdoors initiative and the roles of the agencies within the Department of the Interior.

Key aspects of the exhibit show people the myriad ways they can enjoy the outdoors, from watching birds and rafting white-water rivers, to paddling canoes and driving dune buggies.

Our involvement in the State Fair will be a key activity in support of America’s Great Outdoors, an initiative launched by President Obama and an important part of Secretary Salazar’s goal to empower Americans to share in the responsibility to conserve, restore and provide better access to our lands and waters, and leave a healthy, vibrant outdoor legacy for generations to come.
