A Bit Of An Unexpected Natural Wonder, Few People Know There Are Sand Dunes Hiding In Minnesota

When considering the Land of 10,000 Lakes, images of pristine lakes, tallgrass prairies, wide rivers, and large swaths of unspoiled North Woods forest may dance across your mind. But you probably wouldn’t imagine sand dunes in Minnesota. Well, we don’t have a lot of them, but in the places where they do exist, sand dunes are important parts of the ecosystem. One such spot can be found in southeastern Minnesota. Let’s take a look at Kellogg Weaver Dunes Scientific and Natural Area (“SNA”).
