Exploring the Largely Unexplored

Butterwort Cliffs | Grand Marais MN

Every expedition is different at Butterwort Cliffs – there are no trails on this steep shoreline of Lake Superior. With no set pathway, discovery is the name of the game. Step out of the structured world and into the world where every step is by necessity very deliberate. Imagine first hand, what it might have been like in the very early days of Lake Superior will little human contact. Get ready to log your expedition!

Meet in the picnic area parking lot at Cascade River State Park. You do not need a park sticker as we will not leave our cars there. Free

Funding for this program is provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).

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.
