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.

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.
