Mendota, MN 55120


$20/$15 for MNHS and DCHS members

Have a drink with friends while learning about Minnesota history in the intimate setting of the Sibley Historic Site. A new topic will be offered on the second Friday of each month, May-November.

In August, join Jenny Kedward and Kristi Otterson from Dakota County to learn about Minnesota's history of trash and recycling.

Find out how the history of trash has changed over time from pits to dumps to industrial landfills and what work is being done to keep things out of the trash can today. At this talk, attendees will understand the emotional and regulatory responses to what we throw away.

Jenny Kedward is an environmental specialist for Dakota County in the southern Twin Cities. Kristi Otterson works with waste regulation in Dakota County, where she manages transfer stations, landfills, and most recently, started coordinating the county household hazardous waste facility.

Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the presentation begins at 6 pm. Light food and one drink ticket will be provided with each paid admission for ages 21 and up.
