North Dakota’s first Born Learning Trail Spanish Version Installment

It is with sorrow that we have decided to reschedule the installation of the Spanish version of our Born Learning Trail. We were recently victims of the TikTok trend going around in which people are stealing from schools and parks. We had 3 signs stolen from the trail. We do not want our community to lose more of their beautiful signs. We will announce a new date in the near future. Thank you all in advance for your understanding.



Come join United Way of Dickinson, City of Dickinson, and Marathon Petroleum Corportation for the installation of North Dakota’s first Born Learning Trail, the Spanish version. Free to all who would like to join us! For more information please go to https://dickinsonunitedway.com/born-learning/
