Esko School Forest Opening

Esko School Forest Opening
Posted on 09/30/2022
School Forest Logo The Esko School Forest will be officially opening to the public on Saturday, October 1st. Community members are invited to join us for an opening event from 12:00 to 2:00. Forest committee members will be on site to answer questions, take ideas, and share our district’s newest learning space! Come join us and walk the trails, participate in the scavenger hunt, and see a live performance by the Esko school choir!
The Esko School Forest is located around the Esko School Fields and consists of approximately 2 miles of walking trails and learning stations. This project was started in November of 2021 by a group of Esko educators and community members who wanted to provide opportunities and a place for teachers to bring learning outdoors. This setting is meant for students, athletes, and community members to use and will be open all seasons. Working alongside the MN DNR, the Esko School Forest will grow over time to include benches, signage, parking, bridges, picnic tables, water access, native plant life, and more! With help from our school and community, this area will be something our community can treasure for years to come.
