Beginning Fall, 2016:  Water Quality Awareness and Action:  Corcoran GROWS will be working

 on raising awareness of the impact we collectively have on the Hiawatha Lake watershed we are part of, and help support actions we can all tak

e to improve water quality.  The Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood, just to the south of us, has been doing some good work in this regard.  Stay tuned for more information. 

GROWS Campout in July:  A few neighbors met for camping at Interstate State Park on the weekend of July 9th and 10th.   Getting out into nature together was a fun way to get to know each other better, experience som

e hiking, rock-climbing, and of course eating plenty of s’mores!
