Blueberry Season
Blueberry Season

Blueberry bushes flower in early June during black fly season, which is perfect because the flies pollinate the blooms. Given adequate regular rain, berries ripen and you may be treated to one as early as the 4th of July right through Labor Day, but the bulk of the season is mid-July to mid-August.

Not sure where to look? Stop by the Tofte [7355 Hwy 61, Tofte, MN 55615] or Gunflint Ranger [ 2020 W Hwy 61, Grand Marais, MN 55604] Stations and ask for suggestions, but don’t expect anyone to give away their secret spot!

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center | Grand Marais MN

From railways to logging and settlers to trappers, this part of the Boundary Waters was a hub of activity more than 100 years ago. Learn about the people and events that defined the history of the area.

Dave Battistel is a history teacher and instructional leader at St. Patrick High School in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Since 1994 he has been actively researching and writing about the history of the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway, as well as its associated ventures (silver and iron mining and logging). He is currently writing a book on the Gunflint & Lake Superior Railroad.

All presentations are family friendly and free to the public.

The presentation will be held inside Chik-Wauk Nature Center.
