BEMIDJI — Lake Bemidji State Park hosted the 14th Annual Project GreenTouch on May 4.

The event was presented by Minnesota’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives and saw about 40 Beltrami Electric Cooperative members, friends and park staff help clean up the lakeside picnic lodge and dining hall in preparation for the 2013 season.

Statewide, volunteers representing numerous cooperatives donated hundreds of hours to the coordinated State Park cleanup effort. Over the past 14 years, more than 8,000 people have worked tens of thousands of hours, providing a service to parks.

Minnesota’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives participating in Project GreenTouch are part of a group of rural electric cooperatives throughout the state.
