Flock to the Superior School Forest

by Gretchen MarshallflockToTheForest.gif
The Superior school forests sits on 700 acres of land approximately 20 minutes from the city of Superior. Recent revitalization of the program has allowed over 2,000 students to visit the forest each year. As with many districts who need to travel from their schools to outlying school forest sites, transportation costs are an issue.

Superior school forest coordinator Lori Danz has developed a creative community fundraising program. Through the “Flock to the Forest” program, local area businesses are asked to donate money to cover student field trip costs. In return for sponsoring field trip transportation to the forest for students, the local businesses receive a “Proud Sponsor of Flock to the Forest: Superior School Forest” sticker and window decal to proudly display in their window or storefront. What a great way to gain community support for your school forest program!

The school forest also had a neat portable challenge course, recently renovated classroom space, and is working on archaeological dig activities for the students. If you have questions or would like more information about the Superior school forest, please contact Lori Danz Lori.Danz@superior.k12.wi.us.
