Tanned Fur Donation to
Cedar Ridge Elementary School
Tim Caven presented 12 tanned furs to Ms. Heyer for the Kindergarten classes at Cedar Ridge Elementary School in Eden Prairie, MN. The youth were able to touch and feel the pelts and learn of the animals they came from. Ms Heyer's class each wrote a thank you note to the MTA and the other Kindergarten class at the school also sent thank you notes. The notes from each class ar linked below. The MTA received the following note from Ms. Heyer:
“Dear Minnesota Trappers Association,
Thank you for the 12 pelts and the education board – the kids absolutely love everything.  We’ve started some lessons using both items and have additional lessons we are planning on.  Since receiving your package before Thanksgiving, the pelts and matching board have been used by students EVERY SINGLE DAY!  They are quizzing their friends, matching, using the pelts to create homes for the animals and even trying to match their coat fur to the animals.  Today we had a tracking expert come in and when guessing what animal left a certain track the kids were jumping around shouting, “Ermin!”  It’s been so fun to hear them talking about these different animals!  Thank you for this wonderful gift.  I have emailed thank you notes from my kindergartners as well.
Best Wishes,
Jen Heyer"
