Project Green Touch
Add Your GreenTouch To Our State Park
Project GreenTouch is a collaboration of Minnesota Touchstone Energy Cooperatives who join together with their electric cooperative employees and members to volunteer in various parks throughout the state. Beltrami Electric Cooperative volunteers locally at Lake Bemidji State Park, where we work together on projects like planting trees, cleaning trails and campgrounds, raking leaves and provide general cleanup.
Every electric cooperative that participates in Project GreenTouch is a member of Minnesota's Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, a collection of rural electric cooperatives throughout the state that have the same values. Touchstone Energy is a co-brand shared by cooperatives across the nation to convey what electric cooperatives stand for: Integrity, Accountability, Community Involvement and Innovation.
GreenTouch Day, and the sponsorship of Minnesota State Parks and Trails, fit will with the Touchstone Energy commitment. GreenTouch officially launched in 2000, and since then nearly 9,000 people have volunteered more than 32,000 hours to help beautify our state parks!
Project GreenTouch is held each year on the first Saturday in May. If you would like to volunteer, contact us at 218-444-2540, 1-800-955-6083 or firstname.lastname@example.org. (Tools, equipment, beverages and a grilled lunch will be provided) (You need not be a member to volunteer)
