Take a tour

Take a peek at a bunch of stuff that isn’t yours at a place that isn’t yours. The University of Minnesota Duluth is offering public tours of the Natural Resources Research Institute on Thursday and Friday.

The hourlong tour begins at 2 p.m. each day and focuses on research projects pertaining to the area’s natural-resource-based economy.

NRRI is next to the big, white weather ball, 5013 Miller Trunk Highway. Take Cirrus Drive to get there. Contact June Kallestad at (218) 720-4300 for more information.
