A 1,000-acre parcel of land between Aurora and Hoyt Lakes is now the Hodnik Family Forest.

ALLETE, Inc., last June donated the land to the Rajala Woods Foundation.

The Rajala Woods Foundation named the forest in honor of Al Hodnik, former ALLETE president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board, his late sister Margaret, Minnesota Power vice president of regulatory and legislative affairs, and their late father Ralph, a longtime Minnesota Power employee.

Minnesota Power, an ALLETE subsidiary, and Rajala Woods Foundation have partnered in tree planting across the region.
