The Pennington SWD sponsors an Outdoor Education Day for area 6th graders at Oakland Park every September. Hands-on activities teach the students about the environment and our natural resources. During the course of the day, the students create edible landfills, taste glaciers, and take the incredible journey of a water drop. Other activities include a deer population game, tree bingo, trapping, casting, minnow races, water hauling relay and archery. Each year, approximately 200 students from Thief River Falls, Goodridge and Grygla participate in this fun and educational day.
