This beautiful, digest-size magazine invites readers, young and old, to explore wild places and wild things -- native animals and plants, lakes, rivers, woods, and prairies.
Minnesota Conservation Volunteer delivers in-the-field coverage of hot topics in natural resources. And it features the great outdoors. Every issue includes a Young Naturalists story geared to 4th-6th grade readers. An online Teachers Guide helps educators apply a wide range of educational lessons to each Young Naturalists. Educators can download the YN stories and teachers guides at no charge. Classroom subscriptions of the print magazine are available at cost. Copies of past issues may be ordered at reduced cost. For information and ordering, contact customer service coordinator David Lent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our natural history: The Department of Conservation first published this magazine in 1940 with the stated aim of "Conservation Education." The magazine went to every Minnesota public school and library. True to its mission, Minnesota Conservation Volunteer still goes free to all schools and libraries in the state. It reaches more than 120,000 subscribers and an estimated half-million readers. For many households and classrooms, this bimonthly magazine has become a Minnesota tradition. It appeals to all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts -- anglers, birders, cyclists, hikers, hunters, paddlers, and wilderness explorers.
To browse school resources, the current issue, and the archive of 75 years of nonfiction stories in this official bimonthly publication of the Department of Natural Resources, visit the MCV website at www.mndnr.gov/mcvmagazine.
