Itasca State Park Biodiversity

Itasca State Park is a unique "habitat island" of old growth pine and hardwood forests surrounding the pristine lakes and streams which form the watershed basin surrounding the sources of the Mississippi River. This project was created to document current species of plants and animals within the park, as well as historic sitings and records from past research studies.
