The Ney Nature Center is excited to offer a Big Woods, Big River course in the spring of 2022. We will be meeting once a week on Monday nights from 6 - 8:30 pm at the Ney Nature Center Education building in Henderson, MN. We will learn both indoors and outdoors on the Nature center property addressing topics such as geology, plants, wildlife, aquatics, ecology, and human impacts on the land. Bring appropriate attire for late winter and spring conditions to every class meeting!

For indoor class time and any group work, we will be socially distancing and requiring mask wearing.

The Ney Nature Center is located near Henderson, MN atop the east bluffs of the Minnesota River Valley. We will be exploring the transition zones of the Big Woods biome and the Minnesota River. This class will be taking place just as the flora and fauna are coming out of winter and spring is creeping in! This time of year is great for observing spring phenology and nature's firsts of the year. Join the Ney Nature Center's Naturalists in exploring this fantastic time of year and unique Minnesota biome. You may even get to partake in the annual Ney Nature Center maple syrup operation!

Graduation requirements: participants may miss up to *one* evening class meeting. Missing a field trip or more than one class meeting will require students to make up missed sessions. Participants will be required to complete a capstone service project with a group. Projects and groups will be determined by course instructors.

The course cost is $295 and includes course manuals and supplies.

If the course cost is a hardship, please fill out the scholarship application. After the scholarship is fully processed, you will receive a code to be entered in the on-line registration process. Please wait until you receive that code to complete registration.
