This program was very informative, I never knew there was so much to see in Minnesota. The Audubon North Woods was a little more rustic than I had imagined. Beds were for the hearty with good backs. Our coordinator Kate was very flexible and worked hard to make sure we got to do everything we were promised and then some. The Hinkley Fire Museum was one of the saddest parts of my trip. The in house movie was almost more than I could bear to watch. What an unknown tragedy unfolded. I loved wading in Lake Superior-- boy that's cold. The Ojibwe Indian Museum "Four Seasons Room' was very educational, unexpected and inspiring place. For a new learning experience enjoy this tour, just bring along a healthy back. B.Mccomb

Great program. We were treated to everything mentioned in the literature. We went, mainly, for the Loons. Our experience with the Loons at Bay Lake greatly exceeded our expectations. Our host, Kate, and guide, Mike, were the best. Lecture presenters (Native Americans, Loons, wolves, Complete Circle Lake Superior) were all interesting and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful.

After completing my feedback, I realized that there was NO mention of the main leader, Mike Link. If anyone made this program function it was Mike with his extensive background and knowledge. You might want to include him along with his wife, Kate. RBMoreau

A taste of northern Minnesota exploring the history, the wildlife, and how they have interacted over the years. Emphasis includes the native Americans, the French Canadians explorers, the wildlife (especially the wolves), the birds, and the geology and how it influenced the way the land has been and is being used.

Do not expect a great deal on bird migration. Some general information was given. I was expecting something more toward the research of migration.
