Minnesota has an abundance of wildlife, including state bird Common Loon, state fish Walleye, state butterfly Monarch, and state bee Rusty-patched Bumble Bee. These are also iconic animals in the North Star State’s northern reaches, including Black Bear, Moose, and Spruce Grouse. For many people, animals represent the face of an ecosystem, so it helps to get acquainted with the most common species to establish a solid foundation of knowledge. A portable reference like Minnesota Wildlife, then, is a valuable learning tool. This beautifully illustrated collection features 140 representative mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, butterflies, and other insects, as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a wonderful companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts who wish to forge deeper connections with the land through its attendant animals.
