Having collaborated with the National Park Service on the Mississippi River it always bothers me when they allow others to say "Park" or even better "National Park" when in fact it is the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area not a National Park, huge difference. Although it doesn't make any difference for geocaching though, same policy.

At least at this point, I think that I am glad to see some sort of direction being taken to protect the area, although I know all too well that sometimes the protection actually suffocates the thing that it is trying to protect.

Just to connect the dots here...

This will mean that no geocaches can be placed there?

the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area has local cachers who did those River caches: Historic Floods, etc.

Sadly, it appears we're out of time to find the cache: http://www.startribune.com/local/west/132966398.html

The cache has been disabled, and I have notified our wonderful volunteer Reviewer that it will be an extended period.

Sorry, there are no substitutions for any Challenge that might require this cache.

Roseville REI Coldwater Spring Sneak-Peek Tour

Description: Coldwater Spring is part of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, a national park in the heart of the Twin Cities. The National Park Service is restoring oak savanna, prairie and wetlands at Coldwater Spring, which was home to Native Americans and early settlers, and more recently, the site of the Bureau of Mines research facility. Crews have demolished the vacant buildings and are beginning to regrade Coldwater's landscape. Coldwater is closed during reconstruction but will reopen this fall. REI members can get an inside view of the restoration progress during this tour, led by a National Park Service ranger. Please register at the link below.

I went to this Sneak Peek. Interesting tour. The buildings have been ground up up into piles of Gravel! Worth it just to see that! Lots of interesting history in this 30 acre area. Real Estate scoundrels, Typhoid outbreaks, wars and suicides. They are planning many more information tours as the work proceeds. I would recommend it.

They are also looking for volunteers that are GPS savvy for a trail mapping project. Friday May 11, 2012 from 2:00pm to 5:00. They need a minimum of 5. If more than 5 volunteer we can form groups, the more the merrier!!!

Interested Volunteers can contact Rory Stierler at Rory_Stierler@nps.gov or 691-293-8440.
