Citizens League

Since 1952, the Citizens League has had a major impact on public policies in Minnesota. A group of civic leaders had the idea of inviting leaders from different parts of the community to the table to solve big policy issues. This meant bringing together lawmakers, union leaders, heads of Minnesota companies, and experts from universities and industries. As a group, these experts and leaders would study an issue and then write a research paper they could all agree on. Then they would do the political work required to make their conclusions a reality.

Cleansers wash off the soybean oil and fuel oil, but also remove the ducks' natural oil which keeps them buoyant in water. A few ducks got away from their rescuers after being cleaned, and drowned quickly after reaching the water. The ducks must be kept in captivity until summer, when they will molt and develop new feathers.
