Saturday, March 02, 2019 5:07 PM | Anonymous

Join us, anytime between sunrise and sunset, on Saturday, April 20th for a hike and more on He Mni Can-Barn Bluff.  This historic bluff is one of the best-known natural features along the upper Mississippi River.  It is significant for its geology and its association with prehistoric and native people.  It is also significant for its association with the exploration of the Upper Mississippi in the early nineteenth century, and for its mid-nineteenth century through present day association with travel, industry, tourism and recreation.
