Central Lakes College students in the Deck, Patio, and Pond Construction class of the Horticulture program worked on the landscape at Northland Arboretum recently. Mike Thompson of Brainerd helped position a large boulder at the base of what is to be a waterfall and stream on the north side of the visitor center parking lot. Instructor Jeff Dirks and volunteer professionals Daniel and Tom Dix of WoodSpirit Gardens, Backus, directed the work. The service-learning activity will continue with phase two next year, when a man-made pond will be formed to collect the flowage.
