Environmental School Partnerships

Three Rivers has been expanding our outreach with schools to help bring natural resources education opportunities to more of our next generations. As just one example, Scenic Heights Elementary in Minnetonka, has a three-year ecological project underway to restore a two-acre area back to more of its native habitat. The project is being funded by the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District, and you can follow the progress of the project on the school website and Facebook page. Scenic Heights contracted with Wetland Habitat Restorations to complete the project, because they are committed to using great care and sensitivity when keeping some existing native trees during the restoration project, allowing us to continue to offer our winter and spring programming with Scenic Heights Elementary, Groveland Elementary and Clear Springs Elementary.
