Bluffs & Brews: Canoeing the Vermillion River

August 26 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

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 and Q & A session. Immediately after, the group explores the outdoors, specifically a local area that represents the historical topic discussed. Following the outdoor adventure, the group convenes at a local restaurant to reflect on the experience, and for an opportunity to win door prizes.

In August we will canoe the Vermillion River.  Prior to embarking on the river adventure, the group will hear about the history of human interaction with the river—including industrial pollution, fishing, and recent attempts to clean the river.  A social hour will follow at Andy’s Sports Bar & Grill in Red Wing, MN.

Transportation will be provided from the Red Wing Environmental Learning Center to the launch site and back. Ticket holders will need to provide own transportation to the Red Wing ELC and to social hour.

$15 for members | $25 for non-members
