The students walked to the park Sept. 20 and participated in
several activities throughout the day geared toward environmental and
historical education outdoors. Activities included using GPS devices to find
geocaches, presentation by Wright County historical expert Robert Zahler,
observing a restored prairie area and presentation on the historical background
of the area.
Students also gathered prairie seeds to assist with prairie
restoration of the area for Three River Park District and participated in other
activities during the day-long trip.
