On the forest floor beneath our feet is a whole other world we seldom take the time to explore. This is the land of plants that don’t ever flower, and living things that are really small communities of their own with two or more different living things required to make the whole. Let’s explore the non-flowering world and really see what lies beneath our feet. Meet at the Mountain Inn parking lot on Ski Hill Rd. near Lutsen, MN.

Moose are an iconic animal of Minnesota's Northwoods, but their population has declined steeply since the early 2000s. The Superior National Forest has made providing quality moose habitat a priority in recent vegetation projects, but this is a complicated goal. Moose roam vast landscapes, and require a diverse mosaic of different habitats for foraging, calving, and protection from extreme heat and cold. Forest Service Biologist Chris Beal will give an hour-long presentation that will delve into the history of moose…
