Three fun things to do in River Falls this weekend

March 4, 2016

1. The Grow to Share garden is kicking off the growing season this weekend, with a day long seminar type event taking place at the River Falls Middle School. The day will start with 9 a.m. with free coffee, all natural breakfast foods, and yoga sessions. From there community members are invited to attend multiple sessions throughout the day, such as Beekeeping 101, fermenting foods, homescale mushroom cultivation, and knife sharpening lessons. The cost is only $10, and this is a great way to get involved with your local community garden!

2. Falcon Outdoor Adventures (FOA) is planning a day trip of skiing and snowboarding at Afton Alps on Saturday, March 5. If you’ve never been on the slopes, of you’re an expert, FOA encourages you to com e along. The trip costs $% but does not include the cost of a lift ticket, rental fees, or lunch. to register for this trip you can visit the Trips, Clinics, and Events tab on the FOA website and click “Register Here.” This trip would be a great way to try something new or just get out of your dorm or apartment and beat the winter blues!

3. The Falcons women’s basketball team will host the NCAA tournament, taking on Wheaton college at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Saturday will be a busy day for UWRF sports. If the women’s basketball team wins on Friday, you could swing by their game at 5 p.m. in between the two hockey games. The men’s and women’s Falcons hockey teams will both fight against the UW- Stevens Point Pointers for the WIAC Championship titles this weekend. The women will paly first at 2:05 p.m. followed by the men at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Hunt Arena.
