Let's Go, Minnesota!


About this program

Are you one of the 70% of Minnesotans who participate in outdoor recreation each year? Then, Let’s Go, Minnesota! is for you!

Join host Brenda Piekarski as she leads a team of adventurers down rivers, up cliffs, and across prairies.  Hiking, biking, climbing, and paddling  are just a few ways we enjoy the outdoors.  And because we include an artist on every adventure, you will get to look at nature through a creative lens as well.
