Invasive Species
Invasive Species

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center | Grand Marais MN

Join us for a day of invasive species education and fun at the end of the Gunflint Trail!

What makes a plant invasive? What happens native plant communities when invasives are introduced? All of these questions and more will be answered during this kick-off to Invasive Species Week at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center! We will compare areas where native species grow to the areas where invasive plants such as sweetclover and spotted knapweed have taken hold.

This event is kid friendly and fun for the whole family. Take part in an invasive species pull, make a fish print, or explore the beautiful Chik-Wauk grounds.

Schedule of Events

10 am – Guided Hike and Pull. Get a close-up look at what a healthy native plant community, then lend a hand and help remove invasive species from elsewhere on the Chik-Wauk grounds. These efforts will help keep invasive plants from spreading along the wild and scenic Gunflint Trail and into the Superior National Forest!

Noon – Lunch. Provided for participants.

1 pm – Presentation by Jim Manolis. Jim will describe forest restoration efforts by The Nature Conservancy in NE Minnesota and its connections with invasive plants and animals.

2 pm – Guided Hike and Pull.

Common Terns and Interstate Island
Common Terns and Interstate Island

Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center | Schroeder Minnesota

Interstate Island Wildlife Management Area is approximately 8 acres in size and located in the Duluth Harbor Area. The island was created from material that was dredged from the rest of the harbor in the 1930’s. Over the years, some topsoil has accumulated as well as some vegetation. Restoration work on the island is clearing the vegetation and returning the island to the more natural sand dune condition. This has created valuable nesting habitat for colonial nesting birds including the not so common, Common Tern, which is now a threatened species.

Come and learn about the restoration process, and how the Tern colony is being managed to allow maximum success for these birds, as well as other nesting species.

$5 per person; $10 per family

Like Clarence in It’s A Wonderful Life, she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. One by one the family’s secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.
