Southwestern Minnesota: A Prairie EdVenture


“The prairie, in all its expressions, is a massive, subtle place, with a long history of contradiction and misunderstanding.  But it is worth the effort at comprehension.  It is, after all, at the center of our national identity.”
– Wayne Fields

Join a Minnesota Zoo naturalist and the Voyageur Outward Bound School for an unforgettable weekend of adventure, exploring one of our state’s defining ecosystems: the beautiful, complex, changing prairies.

This trip will include up close and personal visits to the bison at Blue Mounds State Park, specialized talks about the area’s ecology and geology, hikes and tours – and guided rock climbing on this area’s famous, beautiful bluffs! Whether you’re an experienced climber or have never touched a rock before, we’ll work together as a team to reach new heights.

More details coming soon – but mark your calendars now!
