Ready, set… RODEO!

By Erika Holmes, Community Outreach & Environmental Education Specialist, Nuclear Waste Program

We’re prepped and psyched to hit the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo with some new activities for passersby. Come one, come all: kids; Hanford workers, neophytes, and haters alike; visitors from out of town. We want to talk to everyone.

This year, our booth really is “more than an 8-second ride”! Explore the bottom of the Columbia River with our critters’ aquarium, test your Hanford knowledge by playing games, and connect with our social media tools and public mailing lists on the spot on our new touch-screen kiosk.

Our Hanford groundwater model is sitting this one out, awaiting its next showing. Teachers, school is starting soon, and we’re looking to book classroom visits. Don’t let the model get dusty! Come see us and schedule your class.

If you can’t make it, find us online anytime with Ecology’s Hanford Education & Outreach Facebook page, our ECOconnect blog, and website.

We hope to see you at the fair or in cyberspace!
