Stillwater Nominated as one of America’s 50 most Magical Winter Wonderland towns in the U.S.!

Discover Stillwater

Trips To Discover: Set along the scenic St. Croix River, Stillwater has been named one of America’s prettiest towns by Forbes magazine. It’s even more picturesque when the historic homes and buildings are dusted with snow. It gets 42 inches annually while three ski resorts are nearby, making it an ideal destination for anyone who loves the snow. There are lots of festivities for the holidays and beyond, along with plenty of restaurants for warming your soul with tasty comfort foods.

Instead of trying to beat the winter blues by traveling to a tropical beach, why not delve into the season? There’s an invigorating feeling that comes from being in a snowy wonderland, enjoying the fresh air and often all sorts of fun activities like building a snowman, skiing, tubing and more!

Understand Native Minnesota: Tahecapṡuŋ Wi

Understand Native Minnesota: Tahecapṡuŋ Wi

Tahecapṡuŋ Wi (Deer Break Off Antlers Moon) starts today for the Dakota people. It was during this moon that deer would go into rut. Bucks would fight with each other. They would sometimes hit each other so hard that their antlers would break off.

Dakota people would not hunt deer during this time. Instead, time was used for preparing their winter camps and finalizing their winter food storage systems. Today, you can still see buck scrapings and broken antlers on the ground while the bucks are in rut. The male deer do not naturally shed their antlers until January.

A campaign focused on improving the Native American narrative in Minnesota schools. Led by @shakopeedakota.

Minneapolis’ Favorite Rooster is Ready for the Winter!

Minneapolis’ Favorite Rooster is Ready for the Winter!

Every fall, the “Hahn/Cock” is winterized. Due to its stainless-steel skeleton, the sculpture can store water under its blue exterior. When frozen, that water can expand up to 10%, which places the 25-foot-tall Katharina Fritsch piece at risk of cracking.

To combat this, the blue rooster is finished with “weep holes” that allow for drainage. This week, a member of the Walker’s collection team climbed into the belly to unplug debris that has gotten stuck, preparing it for the long, Minnesotan winter ahead.
