Calling all pumpkin carvers!
Do you have a group that wants to get creative, work together and enjoy a fantastic fall event? Sign up to create a pumpkin display for our Jack-O-Lantern trail this October for Pumpkin Night in the Park. We will provide your group with 30 pumpkins to create a visual display.
This is a great opportunity for student groups, community groups and businesses looking for advertising or team building avenues! For more information, visit our website or call Springbrook Nature Center at 763-572-3588.
Update: New Picnic Pavilion
Construction on the Pavilion Activity Center will be moving along this fall. A concrete foundation for the building should be done by mid-September and the building construction will start soon afterward. We look forward to making the pavilion ready for community events in 2020 and using the space for our summer camps, classes and programs!
