I received an email from Christina Ragel, an elementary school teacher who was starting a worm bin in her classroom. I brought along my own worm bin as a demonstration. The kids were pretty interested and excited about their new bin and seeing just what the heck was going on in my bin. P.S. I got a whole bunch of nice letters from the teacher and students.
MN Water Quality: Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard!
From Barb Liukkonen, UMN Water Resources Center firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of Minnesota's Water Resources Center is developing a Water Sustainability Framework for the next 25 years to protect and improve Minnesota's precious water resources. Because the state's surface and ground waters belong to the people, we are gathering public opinion via surveys and listening sessions on a range of water issues.
Use this link and complete an online survey to make sure your opinions are heard. It's anonymous, quick, and easy. Responses will be incorporated into the Minnesota Water Sustainability Framework that will be presented to the State Legislature January 2011.
If you're unable to access the survey online, call 612-624-8292 and we'll send you a written copy. Please feel free to forward this message to your colleagues, members, or constituents.
While you're on the WRC web site, you can sign up for regular email updates on the progress of the Framework and find out more about when and where Listening Sessions will be held around the state.
