Three Rivers promotes sustainability

022015_Newsworthy_copy.jpgThree Rivers’ sustainability efforts in waste reduction are expanding with the help of two grants. A Green Partners grant from Hennepin County will help us educate groups visiting five Three Rivers facilities (French Visitor Center, Hyland Visitor Center, Richardson Nature Center, Lowry Nature Center, and Gale Woods Farm) about how to pack a low-waste lunch, how to sort waste correctly, and what it means to be “zero waste” (less than 1 ounce of trash per person). Another Hennepin County Public Space Recycling Grant will expand our Green Camping program at Baker by offering recycling kits to picnickers.
