Bluffs & Brews is a collaborative program between the Red Wing Environmental Learning Center and the Goodhue County Historical Society that began in 2015. First, the group explores a local history topic through an engaging presentation. Immediately after, the group explores the outdoors, specifically the local area that reflects the content discussed in the historic presentation. Following the outdoor adventure, the group convenes at a local restaurant to reflect on the experience, and for an opportunity to win door prizes.

Rain Policy – The Goodhue County Historical Society and Red Wing ELC may decide to cancel due to rain when there is a 60% chance (or higher) of rain two hours before the program. At that time, the staff will call each participant to confirm the cancellation and offer a full refund.
