Cascade Meadow Wetlands & Environmental Science Center 2900 19th Street NW Rochester, MN 55901
Join us on Saturday, September 7 at 1:00 as we kick off a series of events for the fall featuring the Emmy Award-winning documentary Minnesota: A History of the Land and discover the ecological and economic forces that created the Minnesota we know today. At this first event we will watch Episode 1, “Ordering the Land,” and listen to a short discussion about the Land Ordinance Survey that shaped the U.S. led by Lawrence Svien of Zumbro Watershed Partnership. Then we will get to play with historical and contemporary surveying equipment and head out in the field to explore what it was like to be a surveyor yesterday and what their professional descendants do today!
