The Beauty of Minnesota’s Old Growth Forests

October 01, 2022

Old growth forests are more than just trees. Once covering 51 percent of Minnesota’s forested land, today only remnants remain of these unique pieces of the state’s natural history. Many are found in our state Scientific and Natural Areas. Join Becky Marty, Plant Ecologist with the MN DNR, as she reveals the beauty of these treasured places through photos and stories from 1 to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, October 1 at the Lake Itasca Amphitheater in the picnic grounds (in-between the swimming beach and picnic shelter). If it’s raining, meet at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center.
