Duluth, Minn. The Nature Conservancy of Minnesota has purchased 100 acres along the Pigeon River, which runs for 90 miles along the U.S.-Canada border ending at Lake Superior.

The land, which is being purchased from the Eugene Nelson Trust,
will become TNC’s Pigeon River Cliffs Preserve, and includes about
one mile of river frontage on the U.S. side, where the river begins
at South Fowl Lake. The parcel includes pine forests and sheer
shale cliffs that provide habitat for rare plants.

The river historically has been a travel route for trappers and
American Indians traveling from Lake Superior to inland waters.
