Description - The Nature of Saint John's by Various

This is the first comprehensive field guide to the natural and human history of the Saint John s Abbey Arboretum of central Minnesota. Its 2,500 acres of forest, prairie, savanna, and lakes have been carefully stewarded by Benedictine monks for more than a century and a half. It is Minnesota s largest arboretum and includes one of the state s finest forests of native oak, the state s first reforesting project, and its oldest planted pines. The guidebook features detailed topographical maps and descriptions of the Abbey Arboretum s hiking trails, descriptions of 120 native species of vegetation and wildlife, profiles of pioneer Benedictine stewards, and meditations and prayers for spiritual renewal, a "lectio" on nature. It s an ideal pocketguide companion for hikers or for those who simply wish to hold the Arboretum in their hands. The Saint John s Abbey Arboretum celebrates and preserves the beauty and richness of God s creation, fostering the Benedictine tradition of environmental respect, spiritual renewal, and education."
