Welcome Video

This video introduces the 4-part video series and project partners. Four videos briefly explore each of the four main themes of the exhibit. 

You + Me + Water

This is the 4th video of the 4-part series. We explore the fourth main theme of the exhibit, which is YOU+ME+WATER. What are some of the ways we can improve water together? What are personal actions each of us can take? What agricultural practices can protect water? And, what actions can we take as a community to protect water? 

People + Water + Choices

This is the 3rd video of the 4-part series. We explore the third main theme of the exhibit, which is PEOPLE+WATER+CHOICES. How have human choices impacted water, especially in Minnesota? How are changes in climate impacting water resources in Minnesota? And, who is affected by our choices when we decide how we share water?

How's The Water?

This is the 2nd video of the 4-part series. We explore the second main theme of the exhibit, which is HOW’S THE WATER. What does it mean when we ask “How is the Water?” Where do we get our water from? How do we know if it is safe to drink? These are important questions we can all ask.

We Are Water

The is the 1st video of the 4-part series. We explore the first main theme of the exhibit, which is WE ARE WATER. What does it mean to say “We Are Water?” Minnesotans have a special relationship with water for many reasons. We explore these many connections.
