WINDOM, Minn. — Approximately 600 fourth grade students from Southwest Minnesota will get the opportunity to learn about the environment, how to solve problems, and learn about safety at the annual Elementary Fall Field Days at the University of Minnesota’s Southwest Research and Outreach Center near Lamberton.
The three-day program will be held September 10, 11 & 12. Students will learn about the science of agriculture, environmental science, health and safety, and food production. Students and chaperones will rotate through seven educational presentations that include electrical safety, farm safety, animal safety, seed germination, composting with worms, and liquids, solids, and gases.
A Farm Bureau representative will also be on hand to demonstrate what can happen to someone that is caught in a tractor power-take off (PTO).
