  • The life-size bronze sculpture by Jakob Fjelde depicts Hiawatha and Minnehaha, American Indian characters from the poem Song of Hiawatha by the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The sculpture bears the inscription: Over wide and rushing rivers In his arms he bore the maiden.On exhibit at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893, the sculpture was purchased with pennies donated by school children in Minnesota an effort organized by Mrs. L.P. Hunt of Mankato and dedicated in 1912. The sculpture, which rests on a small island in Minnehaha Creek, can be viewed from the waters edge a short way above the famed and oft-visited Minnehaha Falls, and is located in Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    Duluths Outdoor Education Center

  • Letter to Readers

    Welcome to Positive Energy Outdoors! As Duluths year round outdoor education center, we

    invite you to participate in one or more of our many programs. Outdoor education blends

    physical and social skills with experiences in nature, providing important learning opportunities

    for young people. Non-competitive outdoor education programs help youth increase

    physical activity levels and develop capacities for creativity, problem solving and emotional

    and intellectual development.1

    Positive Energy Outdoors is located just 15 miles north of Duluth. Our 40 acre facility is

    surrounded by over 600 acres of public land, and includes waterfront on Fredenberg Lake, a

    100 acre private lake, with easy access to Island Lake Reservoir. Our beautiful forested

    property also includes a large cranberry bog and miles of trail access for hiking, snowshoeing,

    dog sledding and sleigh and wagon rides. Positive Energy Outdoors draft horses and kennel

    of friendly Alaskan husky sled dogs are also housed on site. We produce our own power with

    a 3kw wind turbine and 1200 watt solar array. Other program sites include Lincoln Park, Elys

    Peak in Duluth and the North Shore of Lake Superior.

    Whether you choose dog sledding on our 1/2 mile bog loop, kayaking on Fredenberg Lake or

    driving a team of draft horses, Positive Energy Outdoors programs encourage people and

    animal powered exploration of the outdoors.

    We look forward to helping your group explore the outdoors!

    Sincerely,
