Assembling youth discovery kits

$1,000 grant

$321 local cash match

30 kits developed

This project was originally intended to support youth science field trips to the park, however, COVID changed that plan. The group adjusted the scope and developed three sets of “Discovery Kits.” Each set of ten kits has a theme—animal tracks, birds, and wildflowers. The kits have been made available for local teachers to use with their students, both in the classroom and at home. As the pandemic subsides, the park naturalist plans to use these for public programs at Minneopa, Flandrau and Fort Ridgely.
