It’s a celebration so big, it couldn’t all be contained in one day.

The Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge is getting ready to observe not only its 75th anniversary, but also the grand opening of a new 21-mile segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail that runs through Becker County.


“It’s really two celebrations in one,” explained Neil Powers, manager of Tamarac NWR. “But the North Country Trail grand opening is by far our highlight of the weekend.”
