LINO LAKES, Minn. (AP) — A group of Minnesota Timberwolves employees is using the down time created by the NBA’s lockout for a good cause.
They have organized a collection of Wolves and Lynx employees, season ticket holders and city officials to help clean up Anoka County’s Wargo Nature Center in Lino Lakes on Wednesday.
Timberwolves President Chris Wright, director of basketball operations Rob Babcock and Lynx COO Conrad Smith will be among those participating in the cleanup.
The Wargo Nature Center is part of the 5,000-acre Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park Preserve in Anoka County. More than 400,000 people visited the park last year.
It’s all part of the volunteer efforts of the Timberwolves’ FastBreak Foundation. Senior Vice President Ryan Tanke and Vice President Jeff Munneke will also participate.
