Those responsible for setting up and taking down exhibits need to treat them with care. If there are any repairs needed on exhibits, please report them to the State Office Public Affairs Staff.
A Nomadic exhibit frame is provided for the Nomadic exhibits. The state office has four Nomadic frames with carpets ranging from a table top (5' x 7 1/2') to three floor models (one approximately 8' x 8' and two 8' x 10'). One 8' x 10' frame with end caps only for use with exhibit panels is also available. Lights are available upon request. Each area office also has a table top frame for loan. The table-top frame must be requested from the area office or the state office. It is not automatically sent. An instruction sheet explaining how to set up, tear down, and repack the exhibit is included. Please be sure this instruction sheet is returned with the frame and that any mailing instructions for returning the exhibit are followed.
The state office also has one Downing Board. The Downing Board is placed on a table. A 6-foot table can be used; however, an 8-foot table works best for an exhibit display. Each area office also has a Downing Board for loan. Downing Boards must be requested as they are not automatically sent with the requested exhibit.
Plain table skirts (size 7' x 13' in blue or gray) are available to use with any of our exhibits. A reversible blue table shirt with the NRCS emblem on one side and the conservation district emblem on the other side is also available.
Various banners and headers are also available. Contact the State Office Public Affairs Staff to see if one is available to meet your needs.
If you desire any accompanying materials with the exhibit (i.e., publications), you must request them.
