Longfellow resident and National Park Ranger Lyndon Torstenson explains the history and geology of the Mississippi River to Seward Montessori students as part of Big River Journey, a program coordinated by the National Park Service. The River Gorge in Longfellow is part of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. Since it began in 1996 Big River Journey has given over 65,000 local school children a hands-on learning experience on the Mississippi River.
