One of the main roads to River Bend, Division St E, is closed for construction. For a map and directions for the alternate route, please visit our Directions to River Bend web page. If you get lost along the way, just give us a call (during business hours) at 507.332.7151 and we'll be happy to assist.

Volunteers Needed

We are in need of volunteers! River Bend has a variety of volunteer jobs available throughout the year. Right now, our critical needs are volunteers to sit at the front desk on the weekend, paint trailside, help with public programs, and other tasks. If you're interested in helping out, please contact Leslie Kennedy at 507.332.7151. Thank you for considering!

There's still time to register for a number of Summer Camp sessions. We've got lots of fun planned for children from ages three to 16 this summer at our nature-themed camps! There's a little something for everyone and a variety of topics to stimulate your child's interest in the great outdoors. See our Summer Camp page for more information and to register.

Save the Date!

River Bend Nature Center's annual Ramble fundraising dinner and auction will take place October 11th, 2014 at the Faribault American Legion.

We're also looking for a few new Ramble committee members, if you have event-planning talents and are willing to solicit donations for the auctions, give Ben Van Gundy a call at 507.332.7151.
