exploring our amazing natural spaces

Cool Resources

The outdoor recreation page of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) web site provides a wealth of information on specific activities to do throughout the state. Also take a look at the lakefinder tool for details on each of MN’s 10,000 lakes.

An online resource worthy of your time is the Sawbill Canoe Outfitter’s newsletter, an original outdoor blog capturing the goings on in Minnesota’s arrowhead region gateway to the BWCA.

One of my favorite publications is the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer mailed every two months by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. This FREE pub (contributions are welcome too) comes in the mail and delivers great articles and stories with photos from some the area’s top notch wildlife photographers including Jim Brandenburg and Michael Furtman. I read it from cover to cover each time it arrives and just wish it was in my mailbox more often.
