I noticed a plaque recently near the bandshell at Lake Harriet titled “Geology of Minnesota, Lake Harriet Region.” The date on it is 1955, but I had never noticed it before. It is a big metal slab with lettering on it, and it is installed on a concrete base. I often walk and bike near it. How much do we miss?
