Congratulations to Wayzata resident Ron Anderson for receiving the prestigious Volunteer Service Award from the Minnesota Community Forestry Awards.

Ron was nominated for his work on the Bushaway Task Force, a city-initiated taskforce of community members that worked to minimize the impacts of the proposed new Hennepin County roadway redesign for Bushaway Road on the adjacent properties and the roadway corridor.

Fund Raising:
Donations are welcomed at any time. Bushaway Road, enjoyed by many, welcomes you in our efforts to create a context-sensitive, environmentally and fiscally responsible historic byway. Funds are for environmental and engineering experts to enable us to work with the City of Wayzata to achieve a win-win solution for everyone. If the road is erased, this important 152 year history of the region and State would be lost forever.
