Happy Dancing Turtle – Driftless Region

Happy Dancing Turtle is a nonprofit organization that is home-based in Pine River, MN with a hub in the Driftless Region of Minnesota and Wisconsin. We are dedicated to growing good stewards of the planet by providing education, programs, and experiences for youth and adults that inspire wonder and empower change.

In the Driftless Region, we offer a wide range of educational opportunities and programs. Historically, this has included programs with Community Education and our local libraries, after school clubs, summer day camps, and classroom visits.  However due to COVID restrictions, we’ve largely switched to providing outdoor small group and/or family activities, including guided nature walks on local public lands, scavenger hunts, and educational self-guided walks. If you would like to know more about our programming, please contact us at driftless@happydancingturtle.org
