The Iowa State Fair is under way and things are wild down here at Farm Bureau Park! With 8 days under our belts we have talked to over 6,200 people! When I say talked to, I don’t mean a “Hello, how are you?” I don’t mean a “The weather is nice today, isn’t it?” I am talking about a complete, fun, and interactive water quality lesson.
First, there is an introduction to watersheds and how water moves, then you get to see erosion and runoff in real time with the rainfall machine, and then the cherry-on-top… the world famous, one-of-a-kind, poo shuffle!
If you haven’t been to the Iowa State Fair yet, you still have time to come visit. If you have been to the fair and decided not to visit, well then you may have to purchase another ticket. Moments where you get to push dog poo on a shuffleboard puck don’t just come around every day!
In all seriousness, the Water Rocks! Conservation Station is the premier stop for local water quality education and fun.
The Iowa State Fair is shuffling and you have 3 days to do the same! See you at the fair!
We are located at the southwest corner of Farm Bureau Park, just east of the Varied Industries Building.
