Located in the scenic bluff country of Lanesboro, Minnesota, Eagle Bluff is a non-profit, year-round environmental learning center providing education programs & outdoor adventures to over 16,000 children and adults each year. Through transformative hands-on experiences in nature, we aim to increase environmental awareness & academic literacy, spark curiosity & appreciation for the natural world, and empower people to care for the earth and each other. One of the ways we connect people to nature and each other is through our Dinner on the Bluff annual speaker series.
Dinner on the Bluff, now in its 19th year, is designed to give thought-leaders and experts in the environmental field the opportunity to discuss issues with the broader Eagle Bluff community. Each event includes a delicious dinner prepared and served by Eagle Bluff’s in-house chefs, followed by a speaker giving a presentation on a topic related to conservation, sustainability, or other environmental issues of importance to the community. For 2023, we have three dinners planned:
- February 11 – Marty Walsh, the “instigator” behind the Minnesota Driftless Hiking Trail, will speak on the effort to develop a 110+ mile backpacking-focused trail from Chatfield to the Mississippi River through Minnesota’s Bluff Country or Driftless Area.
- March 25 – Doug Duren, passionate hunter, farmer, land manager, conservationist, and frequent contributor to the Meateater television show and podcast, will speak about Sharing the Land, a conservation cooperators network connecting landowners with hunters and private land access seekers.
- April 22 – Bill & Mary Bailey, forester and farmer, teacher and bluebirder, have the future as their primary focus for all they do on the land they own. From careful farming practices and timber stand improvement to fostering eastern bluebirds and promoting the local Lost Creek Hiking Trail, they will share with you their enjoyment of all aspects of nature.
