This presentation will celebrate the history of cave exploration in SE Minnesota, as well as the value of our caves as a living laboratory for geological history and for studying and understanding water quality issues. Fillmore County has an estimated 300 caves and the presenters have explored about 30 of them. We will demonstrate and explain cave exploration and survey techniques along with caving safety, and will share many slides of the beauty of our local cave formations, or speleothems.

Bring the kids! This week’s free youth activity in the upper level studio space of the St. Mane Theatre is: Exploring a Karst Landscape.
Science Sundays is a speaker series that welcomes you to expand your mind on water related topics. Every Sunday at 2pm in the St. Mane Theatre auditorium, an expert will share their knowledge and stories with you through film and presentations. These events are family friendly thanks to a children’s companion activity that occurs at the same time in the upstairs studio room of the St. Mane. The children’s activities relate to theme in a fun, educational way. This series is free of charge, but donations will be accepted in the lobby and will go towards supporting Friends of the Root River and Lanesboro Arts.
