If you are a special education teacher new to the district or have not been to the Belwin Outdoor Science, I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.  Special education teachers can bring their students to Belwin Outdoor Science to have hands-on science experiences.  Belwin Outdoor Science is located in Afton, Minnesota about 30 minutes east of St. Paul. The program is a result of a partnership between the Saint Paul Public Schools and a non-profit called the Belwin Conservancy.

Students have over 225 acres of woods, prairie, ponds, and streams to explore. The special education program is led by a licensed special education teacher. Each year over 2000 students and teachers take part in this program. We service early childhood special education programs, elementary, middle school, secondary, and transition programs.

Interested in our classes? Here is a list:  Course Descriptions

I can be reached by e-mail at or by calling 651-744-7968.

I hope you and your class are able to make it out this year!
