River’s Edge Academy is a St. Paul, Minnesota, environmental charter school that challenges students to discover their potential by learning through experience in a small, supportive community. Environmental and sustainable themes are embedded in the core of its curriculum. The school has a small outdoor classroom with picnic tables, a chicken coop, an old hoop shed, a broken pizza oven, a rusting fire pit and a garden. Volunteers will help update and repair the outdoor classroom to enrich students' educational experience by bringing their values outdoors and into their community.
