12 YEARS OF FUNDING WOOD LAKE NATURE CENTER
 
Eventbrite - Urban Wildland Half Marathon & 5K 2014 marks the 12th year of the Urban Wildland.  Since 2003, proceeds from the event have funded the environmental-education partnership between Wood Lake Nature Center and Richfield Public Schools that has run continuously since 1971.  Watch our new video showing Urban Wildland funds in action through Wood Lake's science curriculum!

FUND A FIELD TRIP NEW!
