Since the 1940s the School District of River Falls has owned about 70 acres of a pristine section of school forest property. This is considered to be the first school forest of Pierce County. Our community has held the decades-long dream for this land to be an accessible place for our students and community to learn, recreate and cultivate an appreciation and respect for our environment.
This past January, with the collaboration of many individuals and organizations in our community, that dream became one step closer to reality. Through a purchase of adjoining land by the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust, the school forest is no longer land-locked. It’s now time to dream big and help shape the future of this land.
Please join us for the Big Dream Event at 6 p.m. Oct. 12 at River Falls High School.
The evening includes a history of the school forest, the mission and vision for the future, and how we can all work together to achieve the dream.
Help shape the future of our beautiful school forest. I invite you to dream big and join us on Oct. 12.
Superintendent of School District of River Falls
