Lake of the Hills

The personnel at Pathfinders are great to work with, cordial, and responsive to our needs. Working with them enabled us to accomplish, in a short period of time, what would have taken us a much (much!) longer time. The staff maintains contact, asks pertinent questions, and has a great attitude. We could not have asked for more.Roger Keane, Executive Director and Marc Miller, Deputy Director of Scott County Conservation Board
