We talk with artists, photographers, authors and nature enthusiasts frequently on KAXE/KBXE.  Today we met Duluth nature photographer Dudley Edmonson. 

Dudley's career has spanned nearly 3 decades - he has been featured in galleries and in nearly 100 different publications.  You can see his work in Stan Tekiela's Bird:  The Definitive Visual Guide published by Audobon.  His book "The Black and Brown Faces in America's Wild Places" features 20 other African Americans with deep connections to nature.

In 2014 The city of Duluth was named the best town in America by Outside magazine.  Their mayor, Don Ness, had a lot to do with that.  Elected to the Duluth city council when he was 25, he was mayor of Duluth beginning in 2008.

Men, women and children from across northern Minnesota participated in women's marches today. Some did so in their home towns and some traveled as far as Washington DC. Each one marched for his or her own reason.  We're collecting a photo album and asking northern Minnesotans why they participated. 

Tell us why you marched and attach a photo! Send it to comments@kaxe.org and we will add yours to our album.
