I live near Grass Lake in Minneapolis - originally part of Richfield Lake, but separated during the Highway 62 Construction project. It's a little pocket of nature tucked into the residential area, with a short little trail that connects the south side of the lake to the streets that wrap around the other edges. I was reminded tonight how amazing it is to live in a City where water and green space is almost always just steps away. That a quick walk with my pup can make me breathe (clean air!) deeper and hear birds signing, see turtles and watch ducklings swim. It's a good reminder to keep doing the work I love - protecting these natural spaces and making sure they're in even better shape for future generations to enjoy!
