Baudette Depot Preservation


NW RSDP provided support to create renderings of the Baudette Depot depicting the visions and ideas of the community members. These design documents aided the Depot Preservation Alliance in fundraising and gaining community support. The NW RSDP also provided support for a rain garden workshop that resulted in the construction of a rain garden on-site.
