The event is free and open to everyone.  Free will donations will be accepted.
If you have not been to Kinstone before, I would highly recommend that you check it out.  It is a wonderful gift in our community.  It is a beautiful site that is grounded in nature and all of the world’s faiths.
And it is easy to get to and find.
Once you cross the Mississippi River bridge in Winona, it is only about 10 minutes.
Cross the bridge into Wisconsin.  At the end of the bridge, take a right and head toward Centerville.  Then take your first left on County Hwy M.
You will stay on that road as it winds up the bluff.  At the top of the bluff, the road will veer to the left.
Look for Cole Bluff Lane shortly after you get to the top of the bluff.  It will be on the left side of the road.
You can find more information on their web page.
* The Walking Program is dependent on the weather.  In case of bad weather, the program will be moved inside the Education Center.
