Today's the day to Give to the Max! 🥳🤝

Help us connect everyone to the wonders of our parks and consider donating to Three Rivers Park District Foundation where your gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $16,800! 👌👏😎

This year, your donations help adapted programs and Explorer Camps in a number of ways, including:
• Funding an autism camp
• Helping with transportation costs to get Explorer Camp kids to parks
• Providing qualified staff for adapted recreation programs

With your help, we can continue to engage and ensure access and inclusion to outdoor recreation regardless of ability, income or location. How great is that?! 😊💕

Trying to figure out that last minute costume idea for tonight? The National Park Service has some ideas! We would be a Devilish (and Furry) Bat Ray!

Tis the season...

At a loss for costume ideas? How about something with a nature/park theme? Give it a try and let us know what comes up!

* No guarantee this will be the costume for you. If for any reason you're not happy with costume choice, please let us know and we will do nothing.

The Wild President

Did you know that all three of our Three Rivers Park District (the Minnesota, Mississippi, and Crow) all have sections designated by the state as Wild and Scenic Rivers? President Jimmy Carter refers to the National program in the short segment on how and why those rivers became important to him and the way that it translated to his care for those rivers while in office. Our mission is to use outdoor education and recreation to promote environmental stewardship! This clip is a case study in why.

President Jimmy Carter grew up in awe of nature's wonder. But it wasn't until he first paddled the Chattooga River that he understood the power and majesty…

For those of you who like to take in the beauty of fall from the water - whether you are a paddler, an angler, a hunter, the change in temperatures for the cooler brings the risk of hypothermia. The American Canoe Association (the governing body on paddle sports education in North America) recommends using the "Rule of 120," meaning when air and water temps combined total less than 120 degrees that cold water protection such as a wet suit or dry suit should be worn. Check out this link from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources about safe cold weather boating practices! https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/boatwater/cold-water.pdf

Regan rocks! We love having her on our team here at Three Rivers Park District and watching her do her thing on the court!

Volleyball has long been a refuge for Gophers junior Regan Pittman. Finding another welcoming place in the parks and lakes has helped her reel in an unexpected gift: Discovering her life's purpose.

Fall has arrived! One of our staff, AJ, captured this wiggly moment as we were setting up for a large school group at Elm Creek Park Reserve today!

What does CL make you think of? For us it is Cleary Lake Regional Park down near Prior Lake. Looking for some leaf peeping in a new spot? We happen to know there are some nice maples out there - we tap them for sap in the spring! 🍁

Key Log Rolling

Check out our very own Tyler Thompson crushing it in the pool with Key Log Rolling at the State Fair! Get out there today and join him on the log! Can you out-roll a Three Rivers Park District staff?!

We’re grateful for partners like the Three Rivers Park District. They were one of the first Park and Rec programmers in the US using synthetic Key Logs, and have taught hundreds of kids to roll at summer camps. And a few staff members too!
