September 20, 2018, Thursday - St. Anthony Falls Laboratory Tour

For anyone who has traversed the Stone Arch Bridge and wondered, "What is that place?" - here's your chance to find out first hand! Public tours will be part of the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) 80 year celebration. Below are the tour dates, registration links, and a description of what to expect.

Tours of the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory:
Thursday, September 20, 3:00 PM
Thursday, October 18, 3:00PM

The St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL), through which the Mississippi River runs, is an interdisciplinary fluid mechanics research and educational facility of the College of Science and Engineering at the UMN. These public tours through this historic facility will showcase the experimental facilities and research projects.

Once registered, you will receive an email a day or two prior to the scheduled tour with details of where to meet your tour group. There is no cost to attend, but donations are welcomed through this link (suggested donation of $5 per participant).

Preparing for the tour:

- Please wear closed-toe shoes - no flip flops or sandals. Be prepared to stand and walk for the duration of the tour (1+ hour). SAFL does have an elevator to assist those with some mobility restrictions - please list that concern when you sign up for a tour.
- Parking is reserved for SAFL personnel only (unless you require a handicap space). Off-site parking options include:
    - Garage: 212 SE 2nd Avenue
    - Lot: 200 University Avenue SE
    - Metered street parking is available along SE Main Street, portions of SE 3rd Avenue, and 2nd Street SE
    - Bike racks are available

NOTE: Are you interested in touring the SAFL but are unavailable for the listed public tour dates/times? Please provide your contact information and you will be contacted with other potential tour dates/times throughout Summer/Fall 2018.
