Congratulations to D10’s environmental activists

District 10’s Environmental Committee is a winner of this year’s Lifetime Stewardship Award from the Capitol Region Watershed District. Members of the committee have a long history of fighting for water resources in the neighborhood, especially by leading the neverending efforts to improve the quality of Lake Como. In fact, it was members of the committee who organized in 1998 and petitioned the state to create the watershed district in the first place.

The committee is also responsible for the creation and oversight of the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom. Members and their achievements will be honored at a ceremony Dec. 16.
