The students were taking part in Conservation Awareness Day at Rec Park Wednesday, May 15. Elementary students from Milaca, Princeton, Nyquist and Nay-Ah-Shing schools attended the event, which was sponsored by the Mille Lacs Soil and Water Conservation District. There were 20 stations spread across Rec Park providing information.
