Search the Atlas

What can I search for?

Atlas entries may have been prepared by a student, a partner, or River Life and may cover science, policy, engagement or all three. Some work relates to geographic features, St. Anthony Falls, Bdote, or Lake Pepin, for instance. Other work relates to Dakota people, mussels, floods, art, public agencies or organizations, interpretation, or heritage.

300 and counting…

Currently, as of October, 2013, there are over 340 pins in the map. Our search function is comprehensive, so you may want to try more than one similar term to find the full range of things you are interested in, ie interpretation vs heritage.  We are continuing to work on the search, so let us know what you think!
