A blurp from the MN DNR

Minnesota lies in a unique position on the North American continent. The state is at the head of four continental watersheds and contains the headwaters, or the origins, of three of these watersheds. Water flows north (Red River of the North Basin), south (Mississippi River Basin), east (Great Lakes Basin), and west (Missouri River Basin). From these four basins Minnesota's waters flow to three destinations: northward to Canada's Hudson Bay, eastward to the Atlantic Ocean, and southward to the Gulf of Mexico.
