Jeffers Petroglyphs Field Trip

June 22, 2023

The Beyond Land Acknowledgment Team invites people of all ages to join Holly Fischer on a summer adventure on Thursday, June 22 to the Jeffers Petroglyphs near Comfrey, Minnesota.

“Jeffers Petroglyphs is home to about 5,000 sacred rock carvings, also called petroglyphs, made by the ancestors of today’s Native Americans. Jeffers tells the story of this continent like no other place – connecting visitors to those who lived and traveled in ancient times across what is now known as North America.” – mnhs.org

Please contact Holly at mfischer54@msn.com for information about carpooling from the church parking lot. She and others will leave at 8:00 a.m. for the 2-hour one-way drive to the site which is managed by the Minnesota Historical Society. Admission fees range from $8-10 and MNHS members are free. Make sure to bring water and a bag lunch. Wear comfortable walking shoes! The weather promises to be partly cloudy with a high in the mid-80s.
