Did you know that the Cloquet River is one of the oldest rivers in the state of Minnesota. I didn't know that there was a grant given to study it and while they were looking at it, they found some things.

 "A River Runs through It: Archaeology along the Cloquet River in St. Louis County, Minnesota." In 2012, a survey was conducted on the Cloquet River, focusing on the section in St. Louis County, Minnesota. The project was funded by a Minnesota Legacy Grant through the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund issued by the Minnesota Historical Society.

According to Mulholland, “the Cloquet River is probably the oldest river in this area.” Her lecture will reveal the archaeological discoveries unearthed during the survey. Are there dinosaurs, creatures long gone. Early things from settlers?
