Educational Resources for Youth

In light of school closures during the COVID-19 peacetime emergency in Minnesota, Lake SWCD is bringing you supplemental educational resources for youth (or adults) on various natural resources topics twice every week! These lessons are intended as a partial replacement for many of the activities we host in May for Lake County students, including Envirothon and Natural Resources Field Day, which at this point have been postponed.

Please note these lessons do not take the place of any curriculum or lessons outlined by your School District (ISD381) or the Minnesota Department of Education. Lake SWCD staff are not licensed teachers and lessons are not fully designed to meet Minnesota Standards or for a specific age group, but may provide additional learning. However, staff do have have graduate training in education from Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center's Naturalist Training Program, through Project WET/Project WILD, and other educational or civic engagement training.

The first few lessons include: sea lamprey, riparian forestry, and podcasts from our Conservation Corner! Check it out on our Website's "Resources" page at:
