Abstract: 

In Rice County, Minnesota there are two special and unique species. They are the Dwarf Trout Lily and the Wood turtle. Experts from the Minnesota DNR explain the habitat of both and why they are protected under the Minnesota's Endangered Species law. They also explain how they study the different species and the tools used for both and the challenges their habitat face, like buckthorn, ATV's and land management practices. They also suggest how citizens can take action to improve the natural resources or even become a citizen scientist.
