MNA social events several times a year around the Minneapolis and St.Paul Metro Area. These are additional opportunities for our members to socialize and network outside of the annual conference.

Some social events will be open to the public, some may be limited to members, and some may require registration if there are limited places.

    • August 05, 2017
    • 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • West Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park

    This special event is open only to current members of Minnesota Naturalists’ Association. Climb on a raft and enjoy a program led by naturalists, with naturalists.

    Experience a rafting program at Coon Rapids Dam and wow each other with our vast resource of knowledge of birds, climate, plants, insects and geology along the mighty Mississippi. It’s a rare chance for naturalists to meet and network doing what we love: working in the outdoors. The rafting will be from 4pm to 7pm. Afterwards we will sit around a campfire on a beautiful late summer evening.

    What to bring: Yourself, water shoes, pants/shorts that can get wet, bug spray, dry bag, snacks, something for dinner around the campfire (maybe a hot dog to roast), your knowledge. Adult beverages are allowed, and a fridge will be available at the CRD Visitor Center for drinks and food.

    Paddling and safety equipment will be provided.

    Registration Required! Registration opens June 5th.

    If you can’t can’t make the rafting part or miss out on registration, join in on the campfire!
