Plant and Wildlife Lists

Located on the transition zone between the prairies to the southwest and hardwoods to the northeast, Saint John’s is home to a variety of plants and animals.

The following lists are not comprehensive. If you’ve seen something at Saint John’s not listed in these pages, let us know! (send us a photo, too, if you can)

*The conifers found at Saint John’s are not native.  Planted in 1896 by Benedictine monks, they are part of the oldest pine plantation in the state of Minnesota.
