A dense forest dominated by maple and basswood once covered a 3,000 square mile area of southern Minnesota reaching all the way to present day Mankato. Called “Bois Grand” or “Big Woods” by early French explorers, it was recognized as a distinct area from the band of hardwood forests surrounding it.

In this free program, Scott Kudelka will explain how the "Big Woods" formed, some of the rare species found in this ecosystem and history over time.
