Two free virtual workshops, taught by Karen Terry, a retired water resource management specialist from University of Minnesota Extension, will be offered this September. Sponsored by Hubbard County University of Minnesota Extension and Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations, these programs are open to the public.

The first will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22 and will include an overview of the connection between land use and water quality. A lawn is our own mini watershed. Through the method of “systems thinking” individuals will learn techniques for changing their own lawns to help improve water quality.

The second workshop, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29 is tailored toward individuals willing to volunteer their time as “shoreland advisors” to help others explore ways that they can help us all achieve healthy water quality in our lakes.

Both workshops will include time for Q & A. These sessions will be recorded and made available for future use. Resource materials will be available either electronically or as hard

copy. Attend one or both of the virtual workshops.
