River Restoration: 11-Mile Makeover of the LA River is Moving Right Along

The Souris River as it passes through Minot has lost much of its natural allure — mostly due to the fact we’ve been trying to figure out how to protect ourselves when it floods. But a conversation has started about how to recover some of what we’ve lost in terms of the benefits a river provides to a community.
