Minnesota State Fair 2014

The 2014 Great Minnesota Get-Together was a success and Extension was involved in many ways! On August 31, U of M day at the State Fair, President and Mrs. Kaler visited with 4-H youth at the 4-H building. Extension also featured two exhibits in the U of M building, with a 4-H Science of Agriculture poultry project, and Master Gardener plant diagnostics.

In addition to the more than 6,000 4-H exhibits and performing arts shows, Extension had faculty, educators and volunteers on hand to provide research-based information and to answer questions. This year’s expert topics included honey bees, with Gary Reuter, Extension entomologist; woody invasive plants with Gary Wyatt, Extension forestry educator; invasive insects in yards and gardens with Jeff Hahn, Extension entomologist; and weather and climate, with Mark Seeley, Extension climatologist.
