(Brainerd, MN) — Central Lakes College’s Natural Resources Program and the Baxter Field Office of the Natural Resource Conservation Service were recently honored for their outstanding group of volunteers.

The Chief’s Field Office National Earth Team Volunteer Award, handed out by the United States Department of Agriculture, recognizes only one group of volunteers from the nation. 

The partnership between the CLC Natural Resources Program and the Baxter NRCS field office, that started back in 2019 with a visit to a producer’s farm in Jenkins, has allowed students to get first hand knowledge from a variety of resource professionals while getting a very broad perspective on the issues.
