River Walk 2 : From Coffman to the Flats

November 20, 2012Joanne RichardsonEvents, Former Featured Posts, Program & AnnouncementsComments Off on River Walk 2 : From Coffman to the Flats

University of Minnesota on the Mississippi River It’s River Walk time again!

Please join us on Friday, November 30, at 12:15 PM, as we walk from Coffman Union down to the East Bank River Flats. We’ll walk down to the river via the stairway, cross the river road and go down onto the flats.  There, we’ll talk about water:  When does the river flood here?  How high?  Does it flood more or less than it used to?  We can also talk about land:  who owns these flats?  Have they always been this kind of playground and parking lot?

Where: Coffman Memorial Union, at the back doors overlooking Delaware Street on the food court level.

When: 12:15 PM, Friday November 30.  Email me at and I’ll be happy to send you an event invitation via Google Calendar.

Please note:If there is rain or snow at 11:00 that morning, or if precipitation is predicted to be imminent, the River Walk will be postponed.

This is the second of River Life’s River Walks, a series of walks along and across the Mississippi River to help us explore and discover the people and places of the river.

Have an idea for a River Walk?  Want some more information? Please let me know at
