This video is a live recording from our opening night of the 2020 – 2021 Next Generation of Parks™ Event Series, featuring Adam Arvidson author of “Wild and Rare: Tracking Endangered Species in the Upper Midwest”

Adam Regn Arvidson traveled throughout Minnesota and as far afield as Texas to tell the story of the Upper Midwest’s endangered flora and fauna. More than a catalog of 10 iconic species – including lillies, mussels, plovers, roseroot, butterflies, lynx, orchids, and wolves – Adam’s Wild and Rare (MN Historical Society Press, 2018) is an exploration of the ways in which humans are knowingly and unknowingly interconnected with the natural world.

In this live talk, we visited a cast of plant, animal, and human characters that inhabit our delightfully diverse neck of the woods.
