Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center | Schroeder Minnesota

There are so many different kinds of rocks on the Sugarloaf Beach! How did they form, how did Lake Superior get here, did all these rocks come from around here, how do you know an agate when you find one, what about Thomsonite? All sorts of questions come up when you look at rocks. Margie, our Naturalist will hang out on the Sugarloaf beach every Sunday and answer questions about rocks, and periodically take interested people for an exploration of the lava flows on Sugarloaf Point. Come any time between 10 and 1. $5 per person; $10 per family.
