Many of us enjoy being a part of things that help raise money for a good cause. But one thing that makes attending an event more rewarding isn’t just the entertainment itself, but knowing what your ticket purchase is going to be for.
A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Leech Lake Frostfest will go to the Deep Portage Learning Center, located in Hackensack. Funds from this event will help benefit the Learning Center by providing scholarships for young explorers.
Deep Portage Learning Center, founded in 1973, is a non-profit environmental education and outdoor recreation center. This organization has become a leader in environmental education and outdoor recreation.
The Learning Center also includes 6,307 acres of northern Minnesota lakes and forests. What makes this center magical are the benefits it brings to its visitors.
In addition to accommodation and large halls, the center also serves as a world-class teaching facility. It contains four classrooms, an indoor climbing wall, laboratory facilities, a library, a media center/theater, and numerous multi-purpose meeting rooms that can accommodate various types of educational programs.
Deep Portage programs not only help visitors develop an awareness and understanding of natural resources, but they also provide opportunities for adults and children to develop their own knowledge and skills in outdoor activities.
From the proceeds that Deep Portage will receive from Frostfest, which will be held this Saturday, February 26, they will be able to provide things ranging from summer camp scholarships to general support.
Deep Portage will also have a station set up at Frostfest, where families can participate in ax throwing, cat-and-mouse tug of war, and cross-sawing.
