FPRW and the RMSS Geography Class completed a Porcupine Lake trails clean up this morning. Thank you all for doing a great cleanup.
Students filled a dozen bags and were very helpful in making the lake area cleaner. We are all the keepers of the lake and trails. The Otter family put on a show for a few of the students and Mother Nature feels much better today. Community and caring.
