The award went to "Race 2 Reduce" who engages White Bear Lake youth on water conservation. Several of our staff from our Maple Grove and Thief River Falls office hosted and shared a table with Waste Management as we enjoyed Frank Vascellaro of WCCO-TV emceeing the event. Although we didn't take home a prize, we were proud to be recognized as a finalist in the Natural Resources category for the Grand Marais Creek Restoration Project
for the Red Lake Watershed District.
