Join experienced and enthusiastic instructors in a beautiful 2,500+ acre outdoor classroom in this immersive 40-hour introduction to the prairies and potholes of Minnesota.

Beginners welcome! Late summer is a great time of year to see native grasses and wildflowers, landscape formations, insects, birds, and more. Final certification comes with the completion of the in person course and a capstone project. Following completion 40 hours of volunteer service per year is required to remain active in the program.

Hands on interactive learning, as well as classroom lectures, discussion and more!
