Crosby MN

Barb Grove is known around the Crosby, MN area as Mama Cuyuna.  Her tenacious work to repurpose Crosby into a recreation destination after mine companies left town decades ago earned her the unique and fitting moniker.  Barb's unwavering dedication along with the help and passion of thousands of other people who understood the value in this endeavor has paid off. Today, Crosby is thriving.  New stores, restaurants, and outfitters have moved into the area as have people from outside the region - all as a result Crosby becoming a mountain biking destination!  

Northern Community Radio's Let's Visit features one area or community each month.  We kicked off the series this summer by visiting Crosby, MN.   Crosby has become a mountain biking destination in recent years and in this segment, host Katie Carter climbs on a mountain bike and takes to the trails with her guide Teri Fabien.

We heard from students and adults from all over our listening area this week.  It's an exciting time in northern Minnesota and evidence of Spring is all around us!  The sap is running, the ice is cracking and morning cloak butterflies have arrived.  Reports of active wildlife abound - chipmunks, coyotes, muskrats, golden eyes,  hooded mergansers and a rooster that crowed 68 times in a row are just a few assurances that our weather is changing!
