Midmorning today at 10:06 a.m. CT tackles the question is travel ever green?

Tourists are increasingly seeking vacations that support local cultures and the environment. Now this new style of ecotourism is struggling to define itself.

I have to wonder what that might look like here in Minnesota. Catch and release? Biking from state park to state park? Attending a Friday night fish fry hosted by locavores? Join our online discussion about bringing ecotourism to the local level.
