This is the 2nd year for the fair and this year 40 more students will be participating.

Today was supposed to be our first round of puppet shows with Snow the Bald Eagle and Spotty the Leopard Frog.   Due to the coming snow storm the shows from today are rescheduled to next week where we are already heading out to 6 1st grade classrooms. That will be 9 shows by the end of the month.  It will be fun for all!   If you're local and would like us to come visit from a 10-20 minute program, let us know.

Get out there and take advantage of these learning opportunities about our local rivers and Lake Superior.
