In September 2017 Wage Grade staff from across FWS participated in the re-roofing and re-construction of several buildings on the Louisville Swamp unit of Minnesota Valley NWR. The historic preservation workshop provided hands-on training to FWS staff delivered by instructors from the NPS' National Historic Preservation Training Center. The goal of the workshop is to help FWS staff and manager better address the needs of our historic buildings.
