Check out this interesting article by the MINNPOST about the rapid population decline in Koochiching County. While it feels pretty gloom-n-doom, we have some great things going on through Borderland Young Professionals aimed at retaining the young people we already have in the community and, hopefully, work towards creating an environment that attracts new community members to come live, work, and most importantly play in our beautiful borderland!
