Watershed Exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair Eco Experience 

The Eco-Arcade

Since 2006, the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) has designed and coordinated an exhibit in the Eco Experience building at the Minnesota State Fair. The area provides a place where kids of all ages can come to learn and play.
The exhibit focuses on things we do that cause nonpoint source water pollution....but in a really fun way. Some of the highlights include:

Multimedia Water Program

In partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), CGEE helps provide another of its educational multimedia programs, “The Urban Water Cycle,” on a kiosk in the "Water" area of the Eco Experience building.

The Eco Experience building

The Eco Experience is a project of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), and it provides information and hands-on demonstrations of sustainable products and practices to Minnesota State Fair visitors.
CGEE is one of the roughly 35 major partners in the building.
Come visit us! The Eco Experience building is in the northeast quadrant of the fair, near the 4-H building. Look for the giant windmill blade out front.
