Here in Faribault, we are fortunate to have the River Bend Nature Center located within city limits. It is a gorgeous area with more than 700 acres of land that can be roamed on well maintained trails, river views and educational programs. It is one of my favorite places in Faribault, and if you agree, then you can help support the operations of the River Bend Nature Center by attending the River Bend Ramble this Saturday!

All proceeds made at the River Bend Ramble support the River Bend Nature Center's mission to “help all people discover, enjoy, understand, and preserve the incredible natural world that surrounds us.” The annual River Bend Ramble is a night of fun including dinner, entertainment, live auction, silent auction, cash bar and a Wall of Wine and a Wall of Beer raffle.
