Freshwater Forest

Freshwater Forest invites all ages to discover and enjoy YOUR National Forests. Explore connections between human history, aquatic habitat and forest management within the Superior and Chippewa National Forests. This exhibit was made possible with support from the United States Forest Service and the National Scenic Byway Program.
