If you have a chance to come up and visit Chik-Wauk Museum you will start to see the beginning of the new Nature Center that will be open for the 2016 season. A huge thank you to everyone that has donated to the Phase 2 Capitol Building Campaign we could not have done any of this without your generosity. We still have a bit to raise to continue the outstanding high quality of the presentations that you see in the Chik-Wauk Museum to match the same high quality we have planned for the Nature Center. If you would like to donate to the Building Campaign follow the link to The Gunflint Trail Historical Society website.
Summer is still here on the Gunflint Trail, it reminds me every day when the temperatures are above 75 degrees. I know some people think that is not hot but for me I love the winters. I don’t want to wish away summer just yet, I still have many places I want to get out and hike to or maybe get out on a canoe trip.
One event I can’t wait for is the Old Fashioned Pie and Ice Cream Social that is being held up here at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center on the 6th of September from 11 am to 4 pm. We ask for a donation of $5 per slice of pie ala mode. Along with the Pie and Ice Cream Social the gift shop at the museum will be having a Side Walk Sale. You will be able to find some items up to 50% off. If you have not stopped into Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center this summer we are open 10 am to 5 pm daily until the 18th of October. See you soon.
