Journey Down the Mississippi with Doug Ohman, Part One


Doug Ohman visited Meinders Community Library in April of 2019 and we are delighted to bring you his three-part series exploring the Mississippi River. Check back next week for part two.

Part 1: Ride along by kayak on the Mighty Mississippi River with Minnesota photographer and storyteller, Doug Ohman.  Doug will take you from the river’s headwaters at Lake Itasca to the central Minnesota town of Little Falls.  Along the way you will experience wilderness, large lakes and interesting towns in this 400 mile journey.  Doug will share Minnesota history and stories that relate to this upper section of river.   


Meinders Community Library is a combined school and public library that serves the residents of Pipestone County in Southwestern Minnesota. It is part of the Plum Creek Library System.
