MN State Park Wins Award
An announcement is expected today that Bear Head Lake State Park in northeastern Minnesota will be named “America’s Favorite Park”, earning the state a $100,000 prize. The online contest for the designation was sponsored by the National Park Foundation and Coca-Cola. And it appears the win can be attributed to the many bear lovers who followed the Web-cam saga of Lily and her cub, Hope. Bear Head Lake State Park is located between Tower and Ely, site of the North American Bear Center in Ely.
