RIVER FALLS – The School District of River Falls will ask for community input about the school forest at its Dream Big event on Tuesday, Oct. 12.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the River Falls High School Media Center. It will include a history of the school forest, its mission and vision for the future and input on how to “achieve the dream.”
Registered in 1947, this pristine forest land of nearly 80 acres is considered to be the first school forest registered in Pierce County.
“The SDRF Forest is a legacy project and will have a long-lasting impact,” said Superintendent Jamie Benson. “Developing trails with educational stations, a learning shelter, and an environmental curriculum will provide impactful and sustainable educational opportunities for generations to come. Students will gain a greater appreciation for our precious natural resources, become advocates for the planet, explore career opportunities, improve social/emotional supports, and better understand the interconnectedness of human life to the environment Join the district for an evening of learning, dreaming, planning, and organizing for the “now” as well as the future of our beautiful school forest.
