Group Camp talk at Flandrau

Minneopa Area Naturalist Scott Kudelka will present a talk on Flandrau State Park’s historic Group Camp on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 1 p.m.

This talk will focus on the history of the park’s Group Camp from its inception as a Works Progress Administration transient camp in the 1930s during the Great Depression up to the present day.

In 1944-45, the camp housed World War II prisoners of war from Germany and the site is still being used by the public for family and community gatherings. Pre-registration is required for this program by sending an email to scott.kudelka@state.mn.us.

This event may be changed or canceled due to weather. For more information, including event details, weather updates and directions to the park, call 507-384-8890 or visit the Flandrau State Park page at mndnr.gov.

The entrance to Flandrau State Park is off Summit Street next to the New Ulm Country Club.
