Help Kids Connect With The Creek

Your vote can help launch a new outdoor program for kids in the Northfield area.

Cannon River Watershed Partnership is planning to roll out a new project in 2013 that we are calling Connecting With The Creek.  Our goal is to engage people at a young age so they can gain a life-long appreciation of their watershed.  With this project, youth will be engaged through interactive, after-school and summer sessions to experience nature in a deeper way. Hands-on activities will allow them to touch, see, smell, and hear the creek as they learn about its health and what lives there.

Now we just need to find the funding to make it happen!  We've applied through Nature's Path EnviroKidz to win a grant for $10,000 that will help get this off the ground.  

YOU can help us win this grant by voting for the project on Facebook from December 1 - December 15th.

Go to http://apps.facebook.com/envirokidzaward/tabsand select the Connecting With the Creek entry.  

The top 20 projects will move on to the next round of selection by the Nature's Path selection committee. Thanks for your support!
