Join us for a tour of the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam, led by Superintendent John Anfinson of the National Park Service and Katie Nyberg, Executive Director of Mississippi Park Connection. The Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam Visitor Center offers panoramic views of the falls and the surrounding mill district. Exhibits at the visitor center provide information about the falls and its place in Minnesota history. During our tour, we’ll walk from the visitor center out onto the lock walls, and John Anfinson will describe how the falls changed the course of history of the area and of the nation. Bring your cameras because the views from the lock walls are spectacular! Meet in the parking lot at the lock (see location here). If it’s raining, gather in the covered area just outside the visitor center.
