My name is Theri Wasniewski, I am one of the landscape instructors at Central Lakes College. I most enjoy the classes I teach about woody plants (especially trees). We plant them, prune them, check them for diseases and learn about ways to make our communities better by having the right plants in the right places.
The Brainerd Lakes area is a great place to live and go to school. There is more to do in the area than there are days in a week. I spend most all of my time outside the classroom hiking, camping, cross country skiing, gardening and checking out the native plant communities. I think it would be great if every property had a few apple trees and some herbs or vegetables in the garden; sustainable by design! Email Theri for more information
My name is Jeff Dirks and I am one of the landscape professionals who teaches at Central Lakes College. My favorite classes to teach are the landscape construction courses in which the students have the opportunity to install retaining walls, water features, patios, trees and shrubs on campus and in the community.
I really enjoy living and teaching in the Brainerd Lakes area because of the great outdoor experiences available here. Some of my hobbies are fishing, hunting, and enjoying all kinds of water sports on any of the 465 lakes within 30 miles of town. And of course, it is a great pleasure to see so many of our students enjoy successful careers after graduating from Central Lakes College. Email Jeff for more information
