Interfaith Outreach is thrilled to see the Wayzata Lake Effect project in full swing this year. The project is a strategic initiative of the City of Wayzata and was developed after years of community input and engagement. The project will create even more beautiful spaces along the shoreline of Lake Minnetonka – extending from the Section Foreman House to the historic Depot Park. Improvements include the addition of a pier that will extend into Lake Minnetonka, an interpretive center planned for inside the historic Section Foreman House, the renovation of a continuous boardwalk from Eco Park to the historic Depot Park area, and so much more.
This spring, Interfaith Outreach participated in a Spring Splash event to kick off the official launch of one of the Lake Effects’ kid-focused partner projects. The Lake Minnetonka Science Learning Collaborative is a STEM summer camp pilot program engaging kids in environmental and educational experiences.
The Lake Exploration Camp will be offered through the Ridgedale YMCA and area partners including: Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners, Wayzata Community Sailing, Wayzata Public Schools, Science Museum of Minnesota, DNR, Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, Lake Minnetonka Association, University of Minnesota, and others are working together to bring life-changing STEM learning to local children.
