Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa Individual Placement members with the Minnesota DNR ventured out of the metro area on a trip to the North Shore for four days in late October. They drove a total of 700 miles up to the border of Minnesota and Canada and then back down to St. Paul. They stopped at twelve different locations that were a mix of State Parks and Scientific and Natural Areas.
"It’s important to learn about and explore new places in the state. It helps connect us to our work, achieve more and grow professionally. The valuable skills and knowledge gained by attending the short work trip is of great interest to all the CCMI DNR crew members. It is also a CCMI DNR crew tradition to take a spring and fall work trip and experience Minnesota’s natural resources."
