Abstract: 

Rice County, Minnesota, has a variety of forest types with unique characteristics. Using GIS data and historical records, this video looks at how the forests have changed since pre-European settlement. The forest layers are described, from the canopy layer to the leaf litter layer, and local experts are interviewed and discuss the history, environmental, economic and aesthetic benefits of forests. This video also offers tips and ideas of what you can do to take action and be a steward, even in your own back yard.
