St. Louis River Field School set to support students with outdoor learning

During widespread distance and hybrid learning, the Lake Superior Reserve Education Program has found a way to keep doing outdoor learning with students. The St. Louis River Field School will take place monthly during the 2020-21 school year. The Field School is offered free of charge to middle school students (grades 6-8) who are learning virtually or in homeschool.

“Schools, families and teachers really need our support right now,” said Deanna Erickson, interim Reserve manager. “Field School is a way we can help by doing what we do best – supporting learning outdoors.”

Field School will be hosted in the afternoon of the second Friday of each month starting October 9 and ending May 14. Students will participate in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) activities that will be cross-curricular and interactive.

Safety measures such as masks and social distancing will be in place and the number of participants will be limited to eight per session. Registration is first come, first served and will be available via the Reserve’s website and Facebook page. Registration for each session closes by the end of the day on the Wednesday before Field School takes place.

Taking place at different locations along the St. Louis River, including Wisconsin Point and the Superior Municipal Forest, each of these hands-on experiences will provide a place for students to unplug outdoors and gain an appreciation of the St. Louis River.
