Feeling At Home in nature

Ron Schara’s story proves dreams do come true. Back in 1995, Ron, an outdoor beat writer for the Minneapolis Tribune, thought his love of outdoor story telling could be turned into a television success story. Inspired by news programs such as 20/20 and 60 minutes, Ron brainstormed an outdoor adventure program and got to work. The title? Minnesota Bound. The star of the show? A six-month-old black lab named Raven. Ron’s way with words instantly touched the lives of all who watched, and the Minnesota Bound story was born. Ron Created the OutdoorCalendars.com to share his love of nature and the outdoors with other enthusiasts through beautiful imagery, fun facts, and relevant details to remind, assist and educate those interested in outdoor sports in the Midwest.
