Lost Woods 88

Release honoring Tettegouche


We’re big fans of Tettegouche State Park in Minnesota. Part of the North Shore Highlands Biocultural Region, the area was formed during a continental rift that created the Lake Superior basin. Lava flowed into the huge crease. Later, glaciers pushed away sand and revealed the igneous rocks built in layers – found at Tettegouche.

It was also home to native Ojibwe people who fished the lake much of the year and lived in the woods during winter.

The park was named for the group of businessmen who purchased it from the Alger-Smith Lumber Company. The Tettegouche Club used the area as a camp and fishing grounds until 1921 and was sold to one of the members, ore dealer Clement K. Quinn. He preserved the area for 50 years until age 85, then sold the property to a family trust represented by John deLaittre. The family held the land from 1971 to 1979 when it was purchased by the Nature Conservancy and became a state park.

This release includes batches 002, 003 from December 2022 to Spring 2023.
