Sustainable Stillwater MN is working behind the scenes to bring about a green recovery.
As the Stillwater area emerges from more than a year of isolation and caution, it renews with initiatives to bring about a healthier, more resilient community. SSMN’s creative ideas for new growth and vitality center around many volunteer groups, but behind them comes to the need for structure, administration, program costs, and purchases.
