Welcome to Scientific American’s National Park Nature Walks. National Park Nature Walks is an immersive listening experience that recreates what it's like to be there with me. In today's episode we head to the northernmost reaches of the contiguous United States, to one of the most remote parks in the National Park Service. Voyageurs National Park might be the best place in the lower 48 to get an up close and personal introduction to the boreal ecosystem. I'll see you on our next National Park Nature Walk.
