The Minnesota River basin is blessed with a diverse and amazing selection of waterfalls as rivers and creeks flow off the former upland prairie down into the deep river valley. A presentation on the waterfalls of the Minnesota River Valley is being offered Aug. 15 starting at 7 p.m. at the state park.

By taking a journey with photographs participants will learn about some of the more famous ones like Ramsey Falls and ones a little off the beaten path. Space is limited for this program.

Those who are interested must register by Aug. 14 at 5 p.m.
