The Grand Portage Reservation is at the northeastern tip of Minnesota. The Air Quality Program has many ongoing projects in order to maintain healthy indoor and outdoor air. These projects include monitoring for regional haze and particulate matter, indoor air quality, invasive plant removal, public outreach, environmental education, alternative energy, and climate change.

Grand Portage Bay Frozen Over

Yesterday on the bus ride home, I saw an animal running across the ice cover on Grand Portage Bay. It was hard to tell what it was, maybe a wolf or a coyote. It was a great sight to see. The ice did not appear to be very thick, and this morning it was already broken up. Winter offers such great animal sightings...keep your eyes open!
