Whether your visiting Morris for the first time or have lived here your entire life, this pathway is bound to teach you a thing or two about our community.
The pathway is designed to highlight all of the ways Morris is a sustainable community. This includes traditional environmentally focused sustainability and social/economic sustainability too. From solar powered buildings and free EV chargers to cooperative ownership models and access to sustainable foods, Morris is truly a model sustainable community in West Central Minnesota.
The Morris Model, a partnership for progress, is an inter-organizational partnership between The City of Morris, UMN Morris, UMN Extension: WCROC, Stevens County, Morris Area Schools, Stevens Community Medical Center, Horizon Public Health, and many local businesses.
In addition to the Morris Sustainable Experience Pathway there are two more educational paths; one at UMN Morris which highlights the campuses many renewable energy technologies, and one at UMN Extension: WCROC that focuses on the cutting edge agricultural research that they conduct there.
