The Hudson Community Foundation gave $2,000 to the Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center to enhance and develop trails at the 300-acre Hein Prairie and Wildlife Preserve on its Wisconsin campus, south of Hudson on County Road F and East Cove Road.
Enhancements will include a trail map and a brochure holder for the Greenwald Kiosk installed on site, and development of the trails for increased public use.

Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center provides environmental education, outdoor experiences and habitat conservation and serves 20,000-30,000 visitors annually, including 7,000 K-12 students.
HCF is committed to enriching the quality of life in the greater Hudson community through grants for social services, health, arts and humanities, education and environmental initiatives.
