Review for Great River Greening, Saint Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I teach Environmental Science at an urban community college. Since 1998, I have worked at Great River Greening events with groups of my students almost every semester. I offer these events to my students for extra credit and as a way for them to gain experience in hands-on ecological restoration work, while also studying about habitat loss and fragmentation in class. The events are well organized and planned by staff with extensive ecological knowledge and expertise. I have had more than 400 students participate in these events throughout the years, and many have benefitted greatly from what they learned and experienced. Some have even brought friends or family back to the sites to see what they have done. Many of our students have never done this sort of work before or had a direct connection with making a difference in the natural environments of their community. I am grateful to the staff of Great River Greening for providing this opportunity for my students and me.
