Nine summer school students ages 9 to 12 worked with artists, poets, and naturalists to design this bench over two action-packed weeks. They hiked trails, toured Franconia Sculpture Park, and created bronze sculptures with local artist James Shoop. In their own words, the children wanted the bench to reflect, "the importance of keeping the natural environment intact, the past of the natural environment, the hope for its future, and the great beauty of St. Croix Falls."
