THE MINED LAND: A SHORT FIELD GUIDE

The idea for this handbook grew out of our involvement in the Laurentian Vision Partnership since the year 2000.  The Laurentian Vision Partnership (LVP) based on the Mesabi Iron Range in northern Minnesota, is a voluntary effort that promotes and advances ideas for rebuilding local landscapes, creating working relationships among stakeholders, and active participation by communities in directing their future. Fifteen years after it’s beginning, the LVP continues to facilitate dialogue among interests, provide funding for reclamation projects, and identify regional issues for resolution discussion.
