Landscaping exhibitors wanted for Ottertail event

A limited number of for-profit organizations will be accepted to demonstrate their products, services and materials at Nature Meets Design, a lakescaping and rain garden event organized by the Otter Tail County Coalition of Lake Associations (OTC COLA).

Native plant nurseries and landscape professionals (who design, install and maintain ecologically healthy shorelands, wetlands and rain gardens) are invited to submit a proposal to exhibit at the event that will take place in the afternoon of April 27 at Thumper Pond in Ottertail.

Exhibitors will be selected on the basis of appropriateness and level of expertise as it relates to landscaping with plants native to this region.

If accepted, you will be asked to submit a $100 registration fee. In return, you will be provided with an opportunity to market your organization to property owners interested in seeking information on how to control erosion and protect water resources by using plants native to this region.

Space is limited, so it is imperative that exhibitors respond quickly.

For further information on submitting a proposal, please contact Shawn Olson, past president of the OTC COLA, by phone at 218-334-3004 or by email at

In your email, please briefly describe your organization and provide your full contact information.
