PERHAM — Several opportunities to learn more about water are coming to Otter Tail County this summer.

The county is hosting an interactive traveling exhibit called We Are Water MN. The exhibit will be showcased at the Fergus Falls Public Library from Aug. 18 through Oct. 10 and will be free to the public and open during library hours.

Residents and visitors will be able to learn about water and how to protect it in Minnesota, and particularly in Otter Tail County.

Free nitrate clinics, sponsored by the East and West Otter Tail Soil and Water Conservation Districts — which monitor water quality in county lakes — will also be offered at the county fairs. To have your water tested for nitrates, visit the East Otter Tail County Fair on July 22 from 3–5 p.m. or the West Otter Tail County Fair on July 21 from 3–5 p.m.
