Plant Pollinator Landscapes
The Scott County Soil & Water Conservation district posted a webinar to teach you to transform your lawn into a lush landscape that supports native vegetation and pollinators. Bonus: There may even be funding to help you out! Check out the Lawns and Legumes program and rethink your landscape.
4-H is known for its agriculture programming, but it’s much more than that: Kids (and let’s face it, parents, too!) can learn about science, photography, civic engagement, and more. The robotics programs are especially cool! There’s a great place to get started, and that’s the Minnesota Extension website.
Bring History to Life
Dive into history at a history museum in your backyard. The Scott County Historical Society is devoted to sharing the rich history of Scott County. Every day at SCHS you can explore newspapers, archives, books, photographs, and maps, and records that bring to life the thousands of people who have called this place home. For special events and programs, check out our community. Pro tip: Make a plan to check out the “on this day 100 years ago” archives.
