Northeast Regional Sustainable Development Partnership makes a difference by combining citizen leadership with the research and educational resources of the University of Minnesota to foster long-term sustainability in the northeast region of Minnesota.
Our region includes all of Carlton, Cook, Lake, and St. Louis counties and parts of Aitkin, Crow Wing, Itasca, Koochiching, and Pine counties.
