The company known as ITC Midwest (International Transmission Company), with over 7,000 miles of transmission lines in the Midwest states of Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin, plays a major role in the economy of northeast Iowa. Thursday, January 26, ITC made a substantial donation to the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center being constructed in Lansing. Pictured above, left to right, Allamakee County Conservation Foundation campaign co-chair John Verdon, Allamakee County Conservation Assistant Director Jarrod Olson and Allamakee County Conservation Director Jim Janett accept a $3,000 donation check for the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center from ITC regional representatives Lori Broghammer and Dan Hagen.

ITC has also partnered with Friends of Pool 9 and Upper Mississippi River Fish and Wildlife Refuge the past three years to support an extensive tree planting project and establish an internship program in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, McGregor District. With that educational commitment established, ITC offered to support the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center as well. "The Allamakee County Conservation Foundation and Friends of Pool 9 sincerely appreciate the steady commitment ITC Midwest has made to the citizens of northeast Iowa and the Mississippi River valley," Foundation leaders shared. "With their continued support the nonprofits can do great things for the citizens and rich environment of the tri-state area." Submitted photo.
