The Grounds

school forestSchool Forest

A unique feature at St. David's Center is our School Forest -- two-and-a-half acres of protected wetland marsh, which we use as an outdoor classroom and training center for environmental education. Our School Forest Program was certified by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in 1999. There are only five other certified School Forest Programs in Hennepin County.

The School Forest is open to the general public to explore at their leisure from dawn until dusk. It also is available for educational purposes for groups of all ages and abilities.

If you would like more information about the St. David's Center School Forest, please contact our School Forest Coordinator at 952.548.8629.
