Volunteers help our staff teach simple solutions on how to divert wasted food from the landfill, reduce harmful greenhouse gases like methane, and build healthy soils that feed our plants and hold water.

At this event, you will engage community-members with our worm display, showcase our upcoming classes, and share information on other manure management related resources available to the public through Solana Center and our sponsors. Proper manure management helps protect our waterways, saves money, and improves our soil!

Event features: Grand Entry/National Anthem, Bareback Riding, Queens/Sponsor Flags, Tie-Down Roping, Clown Act, Saddle Bronc Riding, Steer Wrestling, Drill Team, Mutton Busting, Team Roping, Barrel Racing, Jr. Barrel Racing, and Bull Riding.
