Riverside History and Nature Learning Center

Riverside History and Nature Learning Center

The mission of the Riverside History and Nature Learning Center is to provide a hands-on learning experience for all of their visitors. There is something for everyone who enters their facility: Goosetown history, the story of clamming on the river, information on riverboats (Riverside was a landing site), and their fishing wall displays of a multitude of fish and those who’ve landed them. Most importantly we provide an opportunity to handle natural artifacts from river critters, both past and present. From bison bones to turtle shells, pelts, skulls, track replicas and an array of other displays, it’s all there to learn from. Everyone can touch and learn, but their particular goal is sparking the innate interests for the outdoors within their younger visitors. They hold the future of these natural resources in their hands.

The Riverside History and Nature Learning Center became a pro-bono client of mapformation in January 2016, after mapformation was hired by the City of New Ulm, Minnesota (USA) Park and Recreation department to develop an immersive interative walk-through of the building which houses the Center’s displays. A finished walk-through was provided to New Ulm Park and Recreation in February 2016.
