Sugarloaf Cove-Life on the Edge
Sugarloaf Cove-Life on the Edge

Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center | Schroeder Minnesota

Living on the Shores of Lake Superior is not an easy task, but the plants and animals that live there are experts in making do. Did you know that some of the plants on Lake Superior?s shore are native to places hundreds of miles away? How do those huge (and not so huge!) cedars that may be hundreds of years old, get the nutrients they need rooted in the rocks? Amazing adaptations! Join us to explore the rocky world of North Shore shoreline and its incredible and unique inhabitants. We’ll see where they come from and what they do survive life on the rocks! Meet at the Sugarloaf Visitor’s Center with sturdy shoes for rock exploration. The program should last about an hour.

This event is offered in partnership with Sugarloaf: The North Shore Stewardship Association. Contact Molly Thompson at 218-525-0001 or by email at sugarloaf@boreal.org.
