Lake Crystal Battle of the Bands Parade Float

2019 Lake Crystal Battle of the Bands Parade

Blue Earth SWCD staff attended the 2019 Lake Crystal Battle of the Bands Parade. Our float highlighted the District’s Great Plains No-Till Drill and the seeding services we provide to local landowners. We appreciated everyone who came out and said “Hello” to us!

2021 Blue Earth County Fair

Blue Earth SWCD staff attended Kid’s Day during the 2021 Blue Earth County Fair. A booth was setup with information on who we are, what we do, programs available and examples of projects we’ve completed around the county. MPCA loaned their stream bank simulation table for the day which was a huge hit with the kids. Kids were able to move the “sand” around, create or remove curves in the “stream”, increase or decrease the flow of the water and watch how these things change the way water flows.
