SUPPORTING WOOD LAKE NATURE CENTER FOR 15 YEARS
100% of the profits from this event benefit the 45-year environmental-education partnership betwen Wood Lake Nature Center and Richfield Public Schools. The program was in jeopardy in the wake of state budget cuts in 2003, but the Urban Wildland's generous runners and sponsors have kept the program funded ever since. Your support makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.
