I’ve been fortunate enough to volunteer with an expert Black Bear researcher in the past and even got toLearn More

Wild Bison in Minnesota

Did you know that as of September 2015, Minnesota has two herds of wild bison?

Favorite Photos of 2016

Just a few of my favorite photos of 2016: Favorite Photos of 2016 It’s always hard to decide on which images I like best because so much of it depends on the mood I’m in at the time.

But Minnesota is a large and diverse state, with everything from farmland to deciduous forests to conifer forests, loaded with lakes in most places (but not all), and rolling prairies filled with wildflowers and grasses that get taller than most people. This past weekend, I finally madeLearn More
