Send your 3-5 grader to Dodge for a day of science in the snow! Hike the woods of Shepard Farm to discover the secret lives of Minnesota’s wintering animals. Make your own tracks with our kicksleds and snowshoes. See if you have what it takes to survive winter conditions by practicing your fire building and campfire cooking skills. Screens off, snow clothes on!

This program offers a day of outdoor learning for SoWashCo students who have no school due to a districtwide professional development day.
