On June 11, National Get Outdoors Day, CURE partnered with the MN DNR for year two of the "Paddle the Minnesota River in a Day" event. The Minnesota River Trail is 318 miles long beginning at the foot of Big Stone Lake and ending at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

Moonstone Farm in Montevideo was the backdrop for The Keep the Hives Alive Tour stop in Minnesota River Valley. CURE and partners hosted the event on the Richard Handeen-Audrey Arner farm where diversified, sustainable, and holistic farm management has taken shape as a result of decades of planning and strategic design. Pollinators find refuge on this perennial permaculture amid a hostile landscape of row crops and chemicals.

There really isn't anything better than to spend a week engrossed with like minded "Prairie & Pothole" enthusiasts.  June 13 - 17 just over 20 people from places like Rochester, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Brookings, Sioux Falls and points inbetween came to Lac qui Parle State Park for the Minnesota Master Naturalist (MMN) Prairies and Potholes Biome Volunteer week long training.
