Landmark Center's popular Urban Expedition program, which provides families with an opportunity to learn about the world right here in Saint Paul’s backyard, has completed its 13th year.  The five individual programs provided authentic cultural experiences that included music, dance, crafts and traditions from different destination countries. Here are the dates from the 2017 season:
