Nature Programs at Sugarloaf Cove

Suggested donation:
$2 per person; $5 per family



Superior Rocks! 2 pm
Sugarloaf Cove is an incredible place to explore geology. Step back in geologic time and learn about the formation of the Sawtooth Mountains and Lake Superior. Learn to recognize common rocks found in the area and the story of their formation. What does a Lake Superior agate look like? What about Thompsonite? It’s all here under your feet!



Bird Banding: 7 am - noon (stop in any time):
Take a much closer look at songbirds! We will be banding birds and monitoring the populations of songbirds that nest and travel through Sugarloaf Cove and adding to the growing research on North Shore birds. Stop in to learn more about the banding process and its importance in understanding the lifespan, movement, and productivity of songbirds. Weather permitting.
