2013 brought many new things to CURE - one being the debut of our new EVENTS & ADVENTURES program. Check below to see how you can help!

The focus of the EVENTS & ADVENTURES program is to provide multiple ways for our members and the greater community to experience the Upper Minnesota River Watershed.

The first year:

In 2013, we sponsored

  • 4 day and one over-night paddling events
  • birding near Renville
  • biking at Lac qui Parle State Park
  • a Mussel Field Day at Memorial Park outside of Granite Falls
  • a 'Girls Rule' fishing outing
  • a public forum on Clean Energy, Climate and Energy with polar explorer Will Steger and Fresh Energy's J.Drake Hamilton
  • Minnesota River History Paddling Theatre
  • invasive species identification hike at Prairie Smoke Nature Trail
  • Gneiss Outcrops S.N.A. hike near the Upper Sioux Agency State Park
  • DEEP ROOTS Better Together: A Celebration of Food, Community, and Landscape
  • 'We Celebrate the River' poetry and puppet show

How does CURE do this?

Many of these events are led by CURE members and others who volunteer their time and talents. Our program still has costs such as insurance, advertising, marketing and staff time.
