Search the Atlas

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.

Currently, as of September, 2012, there are over 300 pins in the map, with more being added every week. Our search function is not foolproof and 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!

Are you looking for something in particular?  Contact Joanne Richardson or use the feeback form at the bottom of this page with ideas for additions to the Atlas, or with ways to make the content we have more searchable, and more useful.
