Widseth Partnership is Helping the National Loon Center Become a Reality
“Having Widseth as a partner brings on a new meaning for partnership. They have been with the National Loon Center (NLC) since day one over three years ago. We have more than 100 partners supporting us and I feel they are our most important one. Their leadership in various fields, architectural, engineering, video development, and project management, has led the NLC to becoming a reality. The talent reserve they have makes our partnership work smoothly. I cannot say enough about their commitment to making our project successful. We are looking forward to the future developments at the NLC.”

National Loon Center’s Fundraising Case Spelled Out in Widseth-Produced Video
Scientists say that loons will not exist in Minnesota 50 years from now if we don’t start making some changes today. Did you know the quality of our lake water has steadily declined over the past 50 years? Loons need clean, fresh water to survive and thrive. We all do! The National Loon Center will help all of us become leaders for loon preservation and freshwater conservation.
“Through hard work, generosity, and pure genius, the entire company of Widseth has brought to life our passion to educate and inspire the next generation of conservationists. We are a success because Widseth believes in their clients. Widseth equals GREATNESS.”
— Leah Heggerston, VP Board of Directors, National Loon Center Foundation
