First tribal national park in U.S. opens on Lake Superior

The first tribal national park in the U.S. opened in August 2012 along the shores of Lake Superior. Frog Bay Tribal National Park is owned by the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa but is open to the public.

The 88-acre park, which was acquired with Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funds, features a globally significant boreal forest and is adjacent to Frog Bay and the Frog Creek estuary, where tribal members once harvested wild rice. The park protects valuable natural features that are of cultural significance to members of the Red Cliff tribe. Read more here.
