The themes for the fifth day of the Iowa City Climate Fest are community effort in providing sustainable business practices and connecting with nature. Iowa City will announce which five businesses will receive the first annual Climate Action at Work Awards; an award for businesses that have adopted to reduce emissions. 

The personal challenge for day five is to check-in at noon to see who won this award and to support them and their efforts in reducing emissions.

The community event includes checking this story map that shows natural features along the path of the Sycamore Greenspace trail and then heading out there to check them out in person. You can also register to participate in a guided hike and presentation at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve. 

Information is also provided to learn about the Iowa Flood Center and The Iowa Watershed Approach projects’ work in increasing flood resistance and reducing flooding in nine watersheds across the state.

The Iowa City Climate Fest urges people to bring a mask and practice social distancing when out in public. For more information on the festival and the previous days, click on this link or check out previous posts from Iowa Environmental Focus
