Northland Outdoors TV explores the past and how it has affected the present on this week’s episode, “Living Legacy.”
Lac qui Parle in western Minnesota is a legendary staging area for migrating Canada geese. It’s an area of intensive wildlife management — not just for waterfowl, but all sorts of birds and animals. We learn some of the history of how this area became a historic waterfowling destination and do some goose hunting ourselves while we’re there.
Tucked neatly into a small building in Little Falls, the Minnesota Fishing Museum offers a look at the vast history of fishing in Minnesota, including 150-year-old lures that resemble the latest and greatest lures of today. We’ll take you on a tour and give you a glimpse of what fishing means to the Northland.
Then we travel to the site of an old mining operation that has become one of the most scenic recreation areas in the region. What can you do there and how did the transformation happen?
