At Loll, we have a great appreciation for the outdoors – not only for playing in our city’s beautiful outdoors but also for keeping it that way. As part of our commitment to helping our environment stay vibrant, clean and healthy, we hold a tree planting and creek cleanup event every year.
Last weekend, we held our 8th Annual Tree Planting & Creek Cleanup, where we dressed like Sasquatches while picking up trash and planting trees.
Us lollygaggers partnered with our sister companies Epicurean and Intectural and other local businesses Bent Paddle Brewing Co., Involta, Republic Bank and Frost River to tackle Duluth’s Miller Creek at Lincoln Park. The weather was beautiful, and we were pumped to have such a big crew come together to help improve this area.
