For 70 years, Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine has provided entertaining and informative articles about Minnesota's woods, waters, and wildlife. Featuring some of Minnesota's best-known outdoor writers and photographers, MCV delivers the best in-depth and in-the-field coverage spanning all of Minnesota's great outdoors—from birding and camping, to hunting and fishing, to hiking and paddling, with a special focus on urgent conservation issues that matter most to Minnesotans.

In addition to all the compelling writing and stunning images found in Minnesota Conservation Volunteer's annual Sense of Place issue, this special iPad version includes:

– A design as meticulous as the magazine's award-winning print edition
– iPad-only photographs, slideshows, and audio
– interactive images that allow users to play bird calls or to view panoramic images
– relevant Web links

Please be patient. We've packed this iPad issue with plenty of extras, so the file may take several minutes to download.

More about us: The Conservation Volunteer was first published in October 1940 by the then-Department of Conservation for the citizens of Minnesota and, in particular, a group dubbed Conservation Volunteers. Early issues asked readers to take a pledge "to support by word and deed all aspects of conservation." In 1980, due to a state budget shortfall, the DNR magazine began asking readers for financial support. Since 2003, readers' contributions have covered the entire cost of publishing. Minnesota Conservation Volunteer receives no funding from state taxes, the state lottery, or fishing, hunting, or boating license fees. The circulation, originally limited to 5,000 copies, has grown to about 145,000 subscribers—making Minnesota Conservation Volunteer one of the largest circulation magazine published in Minnesota.

This is the most amazing online magazine I have ever seen! Stunning use of technology. So many fun items such as the panoramic photographs, you can click on the bird songs and listen to the bird who's picture your looking at in the monthly calendar, the stories are lovely, and the photographs are incredible.
It makes me proud to be from Minnesota since this has such a Minnesota feel to it. The designers, photographers, and writers did an outstanding job. So well done!

I love this app!
