Happy Dancing Turtle

Growing Good Stewards

Through education and collaboration, with sustainability and resilience at the heart, Happy Dancing Turtle has focused on growing good stewards of the planet since 2006. We believe inspiration and empowerment are critical elements in the changemaking process for youth and adults. From soil health and regenerative agriculture to nature play and environmental education we aim to provide programs, experiences, and learning that changes lives.

HDT continues to practice social distancing.

Please contact us for programming updates.

Happy Dancing Turtle is a nonprofit organization that is home-based in Pine River, MN with a hub in the Driftless Region of MN/WI.
