Final reports - communities

Report list by author:

Many final reports for these projects are provided in html and/or pdf digital formats, however some reports are not available through links. Reports that are unlinked may contain non-public data (i.e., specific location information or data that would enable persons to locate the endangered, threatened, or special concern plant or animal). Per Minnesota Statute section 84.0872, the Minnesota DNR staff must take all reasonable precautions to ensure that nonpublic data is not shared externally without following appropriate nonpublic data disclosure procedures in order to protect these species and has decided to not include links to these reports in the following pages.
