Welcome!

Located just minutes from Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha and Minnehaha Creek, Northrop Urban Environmental Learning Center offers excellent opportunities to explore the natural world in the city.  We provide extensive hands-on and outdoor learning to trigger your child's sense of wonder, and enable them to make discoveries on their own.  We believe this personal empowerment is the bridge to a life-long thirst for knowledge. Come see for yourself!
