Edison Students Explore Coldwater Spring with Ranger Dave
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 8:50 AM


Edison Outdoor Club members hiked the trails near Coldwater Spring, a historic site located in the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area.  The hike was led by National Park Service Ranger Dave.  Ranger Dave educated students on the history, plants, and animals of Coldwater Spring.  Students learned that Coldwater Spring was once inhabited by the Dakota.  Students also read first-hand accounts passed down by the settlers of Coldwater Spring, which is the first recorded settlement in Minnesota.  

In addition to Ranger Dave, chaperones of the event also included Outdoor Club sponsors and guides from Wilderness Inquiry.  To learn more about the event, please view the slideshow below.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Baum at or Mr. Strand
