Crow Wing State Park is topic of March 27 Audubon program

Paul Roth, DNR State Park manager, will talk about Crow Wing State Park near Brainerd at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd.

Located just a few miles south of Brainerd, Crow Wing State Park is a park rich in cultural history but also a place to explore prairie, pine and hardwood forests. Canoeists can paddle the waters of the Crow Wing and Mississippi rivers and hikers can explore the trails, including a section of the famous Woods Trail, which served ox cart traffic in frontier days between St. Paul and the Red River Valley.

Roth has been the park manager for this park for many years and knows this park well. He will share information about its history and about the future.

This program is sponsored by the Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society and the Northland Arboretum. The program is free and open to anyone with an interest in nature. Refreshments will be provided.
