The Women's ONE-Hundred group of Detroit Lakes brings 100 women together to raise $100 each, or $10,000 total, to help local women and children in need in the community. The group has just made its third donation to the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center, which will use the funds to raise awareness of ACEs in the community, and for support groups directed at children who have had ACEs.

Trumpeter swans, like this trio gliding along Pine Lake, are a comeback success story at Tamarac. In the late 1880s, trumpeter swans disappeared from Minnesota, and in 1987, Tamarac teamed up with the state in an effort to restore the birds. The first of several young adults were released in Jim’s Marsh. Today there are more than 30 successful nesting pairs at Tamarac.
