Spend The Day Exploring Woods, Streams, and Ravines At Falls Creek SNA In Minnesota

Minnesota’s state parks are wonderful, and each of them is well worth exploring. But there are many other natural spaces in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. They don’t get as much attention, but they’re still full of beauty. Minnesota’s Scientific and Natural Areas – or SNAs – are among these places. SNAs are areas that are preserved for their scientific or natural significance, often because they are home to rare plant species or geologic features. One such place is Falls Creek SNA, a small but beautiful area in Washington County, Minnesota. Read on below to learn about the woods, streams, and ravines you’ll find at this place.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
