UofM Extension finds ways to make distancing fun and/or productive

All U of M Extension staff members across the state are being asked to work at home. (They are finding that some have an easier time with better broadband than others.) But leave it to these guys to make the most of the opportunity.

I wanted to share their recent newsletter, written by Extension Educator Angela Gupta; highlights ways Minnesotans can take a few cleansing moments of fresh Spring area and resources for exploring our outdoors to revive and refresh ourselves.

Here are some of the highlights…
