Zumbro River: Millville to Kellogg Professional Review and Guide

"Below Millville, the streambed is made up largely of sand. Gone are the rapids and rocky shallows that characterized the previous section of river. On the plus side, the Zumbro digs ever deeper into its valley. Bluffs and cliffs are loftier and more impressive than ever. A thick, bottomland forest flanks the river.

Several miles below Millville, the river and highway wander their separate ways. The canoeist is rewarded with a greater sense of solitude. Large holdings of state forestland below Theilman protect the riverside forest. The combination of grassy and forested floodplain provides excellent habitat for the threatened wood turtle. Other turtle species you might see include snapping, painted, and map turtles, and two species of soft-shelled turtle, the smooth and the spiny. This is also a good area to spot wild turkeys, a valued game bird that has become increasingly common in southern Minnesota."
