Full title: Guide to Minnesota Scientific & Natural Areas. This guide is organized around 4 major sections of the Minnesota landscape: Aspen Parkland, Prairie Grasslands, Deciduous Woods, and Coniferous Forests. It describes the environmental heritage of an area, then introduces specific SNAs (scientific & natural areas) that preserve representative examples. Each site listing features a map and a description of geological formations, landscape types, and selected key plant and animal types. Includes township/range/section listing, total number of acres, and how to access the site. Book also includes a copy of the Scientific & Natural Areas Map which unfolds to 20 x 23 inches (see Stock No. 321). Additional maps can be purchased separately.
