Itasca’s Mysteries in History: The Itasca Biological Station
October 2 @ 10:00 am- 11:00 am CDT
In 1907 the University of Minnesota (U of M) held its first field classes in Itasca State Park. Join us at the Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories for a tour of this historic location. Discover the old and the new!
Tour the new Itasca Campus Center before we head out to locate the site of the State Park House, where Mary Gibbs lived in 1903.
Learn about current research projects and classes as we visit one of the few 1930s National Youth Administration or NYA constructed buildings in the state as we follow the route of the 1920s era Jefferson Highway as it passed through the field station.
Meet at the new Biome Center located on the Itasca Biological Station.
