Eagle Express

 

We are excited to introduce the Eden Prairie community to the Eagle Express, Community Education's new mobile classroom and outreach bus.  The goals of the Eagle Express are to bring Community Education programming to community members who experience barriers to participation and to build relationships with underserved populations across our community.

Below is the schedule of events for the Eagle Express.  Check back often to see when and where you can catch the Eagle Express in Action!
