When Detroit Lakes resident Sally Hausken was once asked by this newspaper about her conservation efforts in the lakes area, she stated with a smile, “I talk the talk and walk the walk.”

So it’s really not at all surprising to those who know her well that Hausken was recently honored with the Conservationist of the Year Award from the Minnesota Wildlife Society.

Yet for Hausken, it was an unexpected gift.
