MN Nature Week Activities: Nov 10-18

MN Nature in St Paul, MN, brightens your day with outdoor adventures. Feel like November grays are getting you down? Then it’s time to get outside! Get your heart rate up, listen to the sounds of nature, cross paths with other nature enthusiasts. It’s just the ticket to turn blah into blam! (Is that a word?)

Minnesota has a ridiculous amount of outdoor activities and free things to do for kids (and adults) that are nature-inspired. MN Nature shares those activities all in one place–right here. You’ve arrived. And adventure is at your fingertips!

Please note: November is deer hunting season. Here’s a detailed map of regions and dates.

We live in the great lakes region and the home of 10,000 lakes! Around these lakes are forests, state parks, national treasures (like the Boundary Waters Canoe Area), prairies, bluffs, and more. Feeding many of lakes are pristine streams and rushing rivers. There are beautiful trickling to gushing waterfalls. To us at MN Nature these are our state’s greatest assets and treasures. We hope you’ll get out and explore. If you do, you’ll soon realize the great wealth we have in our natural  spaces.

Enjoy! Happy Fall!
