“Minescapes” Presented by Pete Kero

Come out to the Minnesota Discovery Center on August 24th for a book discussion and Q&A of “Minescapes” presented by Pete Kero, a local author, environmental engineer, and cofounding father of the new award winning Redhead MTB Park. 

  • Date/Time: Thursday, August 24th starting at 7PM
  • Location: Minnesota Discovery Center 1005 Discovery Drive
  • Admission: Free & Open to the Public

In Minescapes, environmental engineer Pete Kero explores the record that is written on Minnesota’s mined lands—and the value systems of each generation that created, touched, and lived among these landscapes. His narratives reveal ways in which the mining industry and Iron Range residents coexist and sup port each other today, just as they have for more than a century. 

“Minescapes” presented by Pete Kero is a great opportunity to learn more about the process of creating something amazing from a former mining pit and what that means for the environment as well as the community. If you would like to learn more about the event visit the full event article on the Minnesota Discovery Center website!

This event takes place in conjunction with Bands, Brews, & BBQ offering BBQ, signature drinks, and live music from 4-8pm (live music starting at 5pm) in The Rustic Pig Food Court.
Minescapes is available for purchase in the Miner’s Daughter Gift Shop – open Tuesday-Sunday.
