The Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center just received a facelift from Boreal Sites team. We hope you find the new look more attractive and easier to navigate. Let us know what you think and be sure to check out the new Calendar of Events page to check out all of the fun happenings at Chik-Wauk this season. Later this spring, the Gunflint Trail Historical Society page will also be updated to make it easier for you to find information about events, donations, and more.
In other news, we’re less than a month away from opening day 2014: Saturday, May 24. We hope you’ll flutter to Chik-Wauk this season to check out our temporary exhibit on “Butterflies, Skippers, and Moths of the Gunflint Trail.” Temporary exhibit chair Betty Hemstad has worked with Youngstown State University entomology professor emeritus David MacLean to prepare this year’s exhibit. The exhibit features beautiful specimens from David’s collection and an in-depth look at the Gunflint Trail’s members of the Lepidoptera order of insects. This exhibit will be on display every day from May 24 – October 19, 2014.
