We are pleased to offer the Minnesota Master Naturalist Big Woods/Big Rivers class on the shores of the Mississippi.

Come learn about the Big Woods Big Rivers biome in the little, but unique park of West Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park. This park gives participants an exceptional experience in interacting with floodplain forests, river ecology, and Twin Cities history. You will gain valuable skills for exploring the natural world, and we will spend significant portions of each class outside practicing and honing those skills. This class includes two required field trips: one trip will give us an in-depth experience with the Big Woods; the other will be an in depth look at Twin Cities sites of geological and historical importance.

The course cost is $275 and includes course manuals and supplies.

If the course cost is a hardship, please fill out the scholarship application and send it to us.
