How are our watersheds? Water quality is a reflection of what happens on the surrounding land. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has reached the midpoint of its first comprehensive look at water quality — and what is needed to protect and restore it — throughout the state. The agency and its partners have used a watershed approach to take an in-depth look at the lakes and streams in half of the state’s 81 major watersheds. Let’s explore if our water is swimmable, fishable, and fixable. For more, visit friendsoftherootriver.org
Bring the kids! This week’s free youth activity in the upper level studio space of the St. Mane Theatre is: Build a Stream.
Science Sundays is a speaker series that welcomes you to expand your mind on water related topics. Every Sunday at 2pm in the St. Mane Theatre auditorium, an expert will share their knowledge and stories with you through film and presentations. These events are family friendly thanks to a children’s companion activity that occurs at the same time in the upstairs studio room of the St. Mane. The children’s activities relate to theme in a fun, educational way. This series is free of charge, but donations will be accepted in the lobby and will go towards supporting Friends of the Root River and Lanesboro Arts.
