I hope fall has been treating you well. I've enjoyed meeting with you and hearing what your priorities are for the next legislative session.
Fall on Display in Minnesota
Fall is in full swing and state agencies are highlighting Minnesota's natural beauty. The MN DNR is tracking color change in the state parks. Broken down by region, anyone can go to the DNR's Fall Color Finder
to find nearby state parks and a brief description of the color change in each of the state parks.
If you and your family are interested in visiting a local apple orchard visit Minnesota Grown website
and search by location or by product to find a local food producer.
