For many travelers, the words "nature" and "Minnesota" are synonymous. Up here in the North Star state our wildlife is abundant, accessible and charismatic. Everyone knows about our wolves, loons, and moose; our orchids, carnivorous plants, and coniferous forests; and our eagles, pelicans, and walleye. But have you heard about our prairies, aspen parklands and bogs? Come on up and take a look. See the sun set in the same tallgrass prairies that swallowed travelers on horseback more than a hundred years ago. Experience the wild symphony of elk bugling in the aspen parkland. Buckle up your snowshoes and head out into the muskegs to watch Great Gray Owls hunt at dusk. Not quite that adventurous? Truth is, you can enjoy Minnesota's wild side without even getting out of your car...
see for yourself...
