Last night our own Aaron Hautala (right) and the real John Schaubach (left) completed their 12 year volunteer run on the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area Citizen Advisory Council.

Below is the list of goodness they helped bring to action during this time in collaboration with countless other volunteers, elected officials, non-profit organizations, Crow Wing County, and the Minnesota DNR.

As Aaron stated in the meeting “In this advocacy work, there is nothing achievable on our own. It’s a culture of “we” and “us.” It’s about relationships.”
