Great Minnesota Parks: Lake Carlos State Park
Client: Pioneer Public Television

Project Overview:
To coincide with the release of Ken Burns' documentary The National Parks: America's Best Idea, on public television, Pioneer Public Television of Appleton, Minn. produced four documentary shorts to be inserted within Burns' work. Pioneer Public Television reached out to us at UMM to produce one of the four documentary shorts that together, created their own half-hour documentary titled Great Minnesota Parks.

Great Minnesota Parks takes you on a journey through some of the finest parks in western Minnesota. With veteran reporter Ken Speake as your guide, Great Minnesota Parks tells the story behind how Sibley State Park near New London was built. You will see how Blue Mounds State Park near Luverne has unique sights, including a bison herd. The story of Lake Carlos State Park includes a look at the different ecosystems in a much-loved park. Great Minnesota Parks also shows how Renville County has developed parks that preserve areas of natural beauty along the Minnesota River, and how the City of Redwood Falls has maintained beautiful Ramsey Park as the largest city park in Minnesota.
