Our Mission 

The Kickapoo Valley Forest School (KVFS) will enrich children’s learning with
opportunities to connect, explore, and engage through immersion in the natural world.

A La Farge School District Charter School

Our public school will be located at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. The school will grow to serve students ages 4K through 2nd grade. We will begin enrollment for our first group of 4K and Kindergarten students in February 2021.

On-site Forest Learning Day

Saturday, September 26, 2020

from: 10 am until 1pm

This event will take place at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve located at S3661 WI-131, La Farge, WI 54639.

Participants are welcome to walk the tour any time from 10am until 1pm. Several points of interest will be marked along the trail. A KVFS staff member will be on site at one point on the trail to share stories and a song. This event is designed for families and children ages 2 - 8 to enjoy together, though it is free for anyone interested in learning more about forest schooling. This is also a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about KVFS. If the weather is warm and nice, bring shoes that can go in the water. Our September On-site Forest Learning Day will take place on the Old Harris Trail Loop from the parking lot of the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. If you are specifically attending this event from 10am until 1pm a KVR pass is not required. Please email kvfs@lafarge.k12.wi.us if you plan to attend this event.

This event will be outside – rain or shine. Please wear a mask when close to other people. Social distance whenever possible.
