S.P.R.I.N.G. Project

Sanctuary Protection and Renewal Into the Next Generation (SPRING)


Springbrook is often described as a jewel of wilderness hidden within an urban setting. After being awarded a $5 million grant from the State of Minnesota for a new interpretive center, this jewel is about to shine even brighter.

For over a decade, a dedicated group from the City of Fridley and Springbrook Nature Center Foundation have worked to create and implement the S.P.R.I.N.G. project to revitalize the 7-acre park entrance and expand the interpretive center to allow for new programming, a beautiful location to host meetings, fundraisers, or specials events. We will also be able to continue our commitment to world-class environmental education to an ever-growing audience.

We are only 15 percent away from funding the vision of the SPRING project, thanks to the generous gifts and pledges from businesses and individuals throughout the community, organized through the Springbrook Nature Center Foundation, a non-profit group committed to the preservation and improvement of Springbrook Nature Center. You, too, can be a part of the future of Springbrook Nature Center by donating a paver, bench or tree!
