Nature Trail Day
Nature Trail Day is an annual tradition at OHA to celebrate learning outdoors and the environment. Events during the day included a nature scavenger hunt, outdoor watercolor painting, planting bulbs, leaf art, and guest speakers (and animals). The OHA Nature Trail has 10 acres of woodlands and is a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Designated School Forest. The Nature Trail at OHA was started in 1987 by Julie Henricksson. Ms. Henricksson was a fourth-grade teacher at OHA and taught for 27 years. Her goal was to raise students' interest in the outdoors and understanding of the environment. She wrote a field guide for students and staff to understand the plants and animals on the trail. She also helped launch the tradition of the Nature Trail Day at OHA. Ms. Henricksson passed away at the age of 90 on October 3, 2020.
