After several painful dance steps of “one step forward, two steps back” it seems we’ve finally cha-chaed into SPRING. Pussy willows and red maples have burst their bud shells and early spring wildflowers are starting to peep above the ground. What does that all mean for you and me? It’s time for a real spring hike to see what’s new outside!
April 26, 2018: 7-8:30 pm: Indian Mounds Park Hike (St. Paul)) – Hike Leader: Chris Olson
Join us for a hike along the Mississippi River bluffs in the Dayton’s Bluff area of St.
Paul. We’ll pass near the remaining burial mounds in Indian Mounds Regional Park
that originally included mounds from 200 BCE – 400 CE, as well as later Dakota Indian burials.
Directions: Take I-94 east through downtown St. Paul to the Mounds Boulevard/Sixth Street exit. At the stoplight at the top of the exit ramp, go southeast (right) on Mounds Boulevard, proceed past 3rd Street and the I-94 overpass bridge. The Mounds Park overlook is two blocks beyond the overpass. Enter the parking lot on Cherry Street. Meet by the historical marker at the midpoint of the overlook.
