1 year anniversary of the KARE 11 backyard

KARE back yard turns 1

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The KARE 11 Backyard has been around for 32 years this summer. The summer of 2014 will stand out as the summer that it was transformed into an amazing space to do the weather, connect the community, and to engage people

to think about nature and the environment every time they watch us.

The past year has been amazing from the dozen or more stories we did to show how it all came together, to the beautiful debut in July of 2014. The following twelve months were filled with countless beautiful weathercasts with fall color and white blankets of snow, and spring blossoms. Many other memories of record food drive reveals, holiday lights, hundreds of Minnesotans delivering toys for tots, and the launch of the Monarch Mission.

We are so grateful to our partners in the KARE 11 Backyard. The Builders Association of the Twin Cities is our sponsor. Their members brought their skills, expertise, and unique products together to create the magnificent new KARE 11 Backyard. Southview Design were the project leaders. Tim Johnson, the designer of the backyard, and his crew did an amazing job and are still working to keep it looking great. Thank you to all that were a part of this amazing transformation.

I speak for my team of meteorologists at KARE, Sven, Pat, Jeff, Laura and myself -- we love our new office and we so appreciate all of your efforts.
