(Road Scholar® #22824RJ) 

Spring in Minnesota’s Mississippi River Valley spells a time of dramatic changes. Flocks of warblers serenade from the treetops as they migrate north. Blooming wildflowers brighten the riverbanks with vibrant yellows and reds. And while waterfowl take to the river, bald eagles soar majestically overhead. Explore a portion of the upper Mississippi River and discover gorgeous city and state parks and fascinating National Parks and Wildlife Refuges. Learn about the habitats of the Upper Mississippi River with seasoned naturalists as you explore the best of the Mississippi in spring.

The Mississippi River Valley in Minnesota is the largest of North America’s major flyways. Join naturalists to witness warbler migrations, blooming wildflowers and bald eagles!

 

Double Occupancy: $1399
