University of Minnesota Extension on a Stick
It is that time of year when we start to think about corn dogs and butter heads. That's right it is time for the Minnesota State Fair! As you are walking around searching for the newest food on a stick, don't forget to look for the great educational opportunities that are available at the fair as well. University of Minnesota Extension will have Educators in the Eco Experience, Agriculture - Horticulture, DNR, and U of M Buildings. Click here to read more about Extension's busy fair schedule.
University of Minnesota Extension's presence can be seen throughout the grounds but most notably in the 4-H Building and Barns where nearly 6,000 youth who are involved in Extension's 4-H program will display their talents, exhibits, and animal herdsmanship skills to the public. To see what is going on with 4-H at the State Fair visit their website to see schedules and download their app.
In David Letterman fashion, I am going to leave you with a top ten of #UMNonaStick things you need to check out during the Great Minnesota Get Together. Make sure to download the UMN@TheFair app to help you plan your route and enjoy your visit. Enjoy the fair!
