HIT US WITH YOUR BEST SHOT!
Wabasha SWCD will have a new plat book available by the end of the year. We expressed interest in providing our own cover photo to the publisher. We have decided to make it a photo contest and get our photo from one of our own County residents. So Hit Us With Your Best Shot! Send us your best scenic landscape photo taken in Wabasha County. The winner will have their photo published on the cover of the new Plat Book and receive an edition of that plat book. There may be a few honorable mention who receive SWCD swag. Submit a digital copy by August 15 by email to email@example.com. Include your name, address, phone number and the location of the photo. This image must be a high resolution image (at least 300 dpi at 7.5” wide). We can't wait to see your photos!
Bring 4-8 ounces of water in a ziplock bag to the Wabasha County Fair on Thursday, July 19th from 1 to 4 pm for a free water test for nitrates! Let the water run for 5 minutes from the tap before collecting the sample. This testing is for informational purposes only and is a free service of Wabasha SWCD.
Can't make the Fair? Drop off samples at the office and we will run them in batches when we have approximately 15 samples.
Contact the office for more details and ask for Jen!
Come and learn who we are and what we do! This is a great opportunity to have your general questions answered by knowledgeable staff!
See you Thursday, July 19th from 1 to 4 pm at the Wabasha County Fair!
