Isanti County students get outdoorsy at Becklin County Park

Around 360 sixth-grade students from Cambridge, Braham and the Cambridge Christian School enjoyed a walk in the outdoors while learning about natural resources and environmental topics Friday, May 16 at Becklin County Park near Cambridge.

Various resource professionals educated the students on tree planting, Minnesota fish, watersheds, amphibians, water resources, the gypsy moth, bald eagles, natural resource enforcement and severe weather and tickborne disease awareness. Each class spent 25 minutes at an interactive station in the park’s natural setting. The annual event is sponsored by the Isanti County Water Plan/Isanti County Zoning Office.
