Minnesota is famous for its clean water, abundance of lakes, and friendly citizens. The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is a resource for protecting these assets. For educating local officials and municipal staff on these topics, we have the following to offer:
You are invited to explore the brand new
recreational area at El Colegio Charter School, located at Bloomington Avenue
South and East 41st Street, at a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, August
17 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The new outdoor facility is a testament to the power of
partnership and innovative thinking. The Latino culture-focused charter school lacks
space for outdoor recreation, with its only current option across the street at
the flood-prone Bancroft Meadows. School officials developed a plan to convert
a vacant lot behind the building into a small soccer field, basketball court,
community garden and patio/outdoor classroom.
