  • 51 Days of Open Water
    Grounded: Ebba Safverblad-Nelson writes about Femmes du Nord. "The silence rang in my ears. It was the absolute stillness of a lake as calm as glass and a landscape without trees. It was the silence of isolation — of the knowledge that we had put hundreds of kilometers between us and the last place where we had seen other people."
  • Being Outdoorsy
    Adventure theme: Alora Jones writes about her experience with Outdoor Afro, which "offers opportunities to disrupt the common narrative that outdoor activity is reserved largely for white, male, and wealthy individuals. It offers opportunities to actively participate in creating a new narrative — one in which Black, female, queer, and underrepresented voices are centered and amplified."
  • A Wild and Alien World
    Conscious Mind: Emeri Burks writes about her adventures underwater. "After you dive, how could you not find all life beautiful with this diversity? How could you not be moved to a state of humility?"
  • The Plant-Based Revolution
    Green Guide: “Eating meat is so inefficient,” Michelle Courtright says, listing the factors: “The energy use that goes into raising cattle. The land and water required for crops to feed the animals before you kill them. The methane alone from those animals is 26 times more powerful than the CO2 of all vehicles combined.”
     
  • Celebrating a Vision
    Celebrations Guide: Susan Armington writes of the sisters of Earthrise Farm. "Their view is flamboyantly simple: Earth is a cosmic gift, and every particle is alive with energy from the Big Bang."
  • My Slow Movement Holiday
    HOLIDAY GUIDE: Julie Kearns writes about her transformation to a different kind of consumer who is "consciously opting out of the speediest, easiest, most expedient option in favor of choosing connection, community, and intention."
  • GO GREEN GUIDE: Building for the Future
    Melissa Rappaport Schifman: The idea that consumers can “vote with their wallets” has never been more achievable.
  • A New Point of View
    Ikran, 16: "The thing I’ll miss the most is seeing the stars at night, because in the city you only see like one star and then it ends up being a plane or something." 
  • Political Heat: Minnesota Mining
    In a community that has traditionally been Democratic, yet saw a large number of votes preferring the Republican Presidential candidate in 2016, the gap between many job-seeking voters and environment-oriented voters is a contentious one. 
  • It’s About Environment
    The big question is, to what extent can mining companies know that they can contain any environmental damage to water and air?
  • It’s About Science
    Cloquet-based biologist and aquatic ecology scientist Nancy Schuldt is a Fond du Lac Water Projects coordinator who specializes in toxicity research and watershed hydrologic modeling. She offered this perspective on the science behind the environmental concerns. 
  • Winona LaDuke on the Pipeline
    Grounded: "I’m ready to grow the next economy — one that’s fair and clean."
  • Finding Place in the Space We Share
    Editor's Letter: How we rejuvenate in spaces, how we seek belonging in places, and our history in traumatizing the uprooted
  • Where the Wild Things Are
    Three new books by Minnesotans convey a sense of place, ranging from two friends finding elusive native wildflowers, to excerpts from Linda LeGarde Glover's Minnesota Book Award winning reflection of the Ojibwe story, to journalist Maya Rao's reports from the innate brokenness of the Bakken oil field landscape.
  • Smooth Sailing at 105
    Pat Marble learned to kayak for the first time when she was 90 years old. “When you kayak, you are low in the water. You look down and there are so many things to see.”
