Cedar Ridge Elementary School Wilderness Wednesdays

Dear Wam Members,

Four years ago I started a wilderness program with my kindergarten class called, “Wilderness Wednesdays.” For the entire day on Wednesdays I take two classrooms of students outside in our school forest/creek area and teach them science, math, and language arts standards along with nature education.  

I’ve been able to connect with a lot of great organizations to bring experts out to the forest with us: MN Tracking Club, our local Watershed District, MN Tracker’s Association, Keystone Elk Country Alliance to name a few.  One of the big areas that I’m missing is fishing.  As an avid angler – I want these kids involved in fishing.

My hope is that some of you would consider coming to our school to work with the children and help me get them interested in fishing by teaching them what they need to know.  

Thank you,

Jen Heyer
