Big Stone National Wildlife refuge – Who, What and Why?

An event at the Ortonville Community Center Hosted by Kelsie Thomas and Scott Simmons Wednesday, August 23, 2018 Ortonville’s Park Board member (and newly appointed President of the Board), Kelsie Thomas takes her part in the review and use of the parks very seriously – and wants to make sure the public is aware of what we have available in the area  – and helped organize what I hope to be a series of similar presentations. Simmons’ passion clearly stands out as he provides the “Who, What and Why” -and answers those frequently asked questions like “why did the trees get cut down?” and “why burn when burning takes nests with it?” — great answers!
