Description

“Almost an SNA: Exploring Icelandite Coastal Fen”

January 18th, 2019

Scientific and Natural Areas (SNAs) protect the best of Minnesota’s remaining natural heritage – places like remnant prairies, old-growth forests, natural shorelines, and rare species habitat.


Join us for an outing to Icelandite Coastal Fen, a site just east of Colvill that boasts unique geology, a rare wetland, and undeveloped stretches of Lake


Superior coastline. It has also long been nominated for SNA status, a process that has involved many partners and may soon be coming to fruition. Come learn about what is involved in a site becoming an SNA and what has made


Icelandite Coastal Fen a place of interest for the program for over 20 years.



Meet at 1:00pm in Grand Marais (Whole Foods parking lots) if you’d like to carpool to location, or meet right at the site at 1:30. There is a small parking lot off of Hwy 61 by mile marker 121. Warm, layered clothes and durable footwear are recommended.
