Goodhue County Report
The Report for Goodhue County has been separated into two volumes. Volume 1 contains information on the major landforms and natural communities within the county, management strategies for these natural communities, natural resource policy recommendations, and community descriptions for each of the watersheds.

There is also a rank given to each site that represents the quality of the existing vegetation.
