MICHAEL BOGERT: Photo Gallery — Red River State Recreation Area

The Red River State Recreation Area, located in East Grand Forks, is part of the Greater Grand Forks Greenway and is located on the banks of the Red River of the North and the Red Lake River. The area, owned and managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, came about as the result of a grass-roots effort after the Flood of 1997 that devastated the communities of East Grand Forks and Grand Forks. The area, which supplanted more than 500 homes and buildings, is a haven for wildlife, including deer, rabbit, squirrels and the like. It’s favorite spot of Grand Forks photographer Michael Bogert, who recently captured these images on a pair of fall days.
