In response to COVID-19, Mankato Community Education & Recreation Department has responded with  a wider variety of class formats.  During the 2020-21 school year, we will offer on-site classes (at Lincoln Community Center), LIVE Virtual Classes, DIY Science & Craft Kits (that do not require internet) mailed directly to homes, and recorded tutorials to watch / learn according to your schedule.  We will be updating our programming monthly through the Fall.  Be sure to view our most current brochure for opportunities to  Live, Learn & Play Safely With Mankato Community Education & Recreation Department.
