Thanks to Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association and Habitattitude campaign partner, we have been given a complimentary booth for the 13th year. It is an excellent venue to promote the Habitattitude through MNLA, its members, and event visitors. As with many of our campaign related events, we coordinate staffing among partners typically DNR Law Enforcement, Watercraft Inspection and AIS Programs, Nat’l Park Service, St. Croix River Association, AIS Detectors, Master Naturalists and AIS County Programs from the greater Metro, and others. If you’ve helped us out in the past, we greatly appreciate that. And, we hope that you will be able to do so again.

From the booth, we will educate and give away various complimentary Habitattitude education tools. Like last year, we will be a part of the fun Treasure Hunt too! 

Benefits for You:
•    Anyone who volunteers gets a free admission to the event and can take in education offerings (http://northerngreen.org/schedule-at-a-glance) when you are not staffing the booth.
•    Excellent venue for education and networking.
•    It’s fun!
