Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: Minnesota





Basic History

First Europeans to reach Minnesota were the Vikings, but the French came in the mid- 17th century. Other traders, explorers, and missionaries of New France also penetrated the country. At the time the French arrived the dominant groups of Native Americans were in the east and west. Both were friendly to the French. Minnesota remained excellent country for fur trade throughout the British regime and continued so after the War of 1812, when the American Fur Company became dominant. After the war, settlement began in earnest in the region. In 1849, Minnesota became a territory, and achieved statehood in 1858.

Environmental History

Oak, maple, elm, birch, pine, ash and poplar thrive much of the state’s woodland. Common shrubs include thimbleberry, sweetfern, and varieties of honeysuckle.
