The new pavilion at McMurtrie Preserve makes for a great gathering place to begin exploration of the Preserve. It, and the surrounding lands, are open to educational groups by permission only*. Last year’s public meeting featured guest presentations by scientists from the St. Croix Research Station on the causes of harmful algal blooms and a fascinating presentation/hike by Dr. Carrie Jennings on the glacial history of the Apple River watershed.
This year’s meeting will showcase Dr. Ed Fleming, Curator of Anthropology at the Science Museum of Minnesota, and his studies on the culture and history of Native Americans in the St. Croix River valley. Come join us, Sunday July 29th at 12:30 to see Dr. Fleming and his unique collection of artifacts.
