MCC to continue construction of 70 mile ATV trail in Aitkin and Itasca County

On August 11, 12 and 13th Minnesota Conservation Corps (MCC) Moose Lake crews in partnership with the Aikin County Land Department and the Minnesota DNR will be constructing a 70 mile extension to the current ATV trail system, creating a meaningful ATV destination within 2 hours of the Twin Cities.  The focus will be on sensitivity to environmental issues and providing an economic boost to small communities.  MCC is especially instrumental in the work that will help prevent wetland degradation.  The crews are installing bridges and Geoblock, a construction material made from recycled plastics that has been used to successfully minimize wetland damage in Alaska.
