Join naturalist Scott Kudelka for a program about how the Minnesota River formed, early explorers, the diversity of wildlife and recent efforts to improve water quality. The Minnesota River flows almost 320 miles from its source at Big Stone Lake to the confluence with the Mississippi River, cutting through the heart of southern Minnesota. Rivers provide habitat for wildlife, food and water for local communities and recreational opportunities including paddling and fishing.
