LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WKBT) – A green project in La Crosse is receiving recognition.

The first parish church was named La Crosse Area Waters Soak it Up! Winner for water-friendly landscaping.

Landscaping was added to solve a problem, with the solution helping in a bigger way.

“We took what was a problem, the water, and came up with a solution, which was to create a garden that would harvest that water for these native plants to thrive,” said Jarad Barkeim, co-owner of Coulee Region Ecoscapes .

Nominations for the Soak It Up 2021 are possible! Awarded on the La Crosse Area Waters website.
