By: Rebekah Bjork | April 10, 2019

MNopedia volunteers and interns have published fifteen articles so far this fiscal year, with a several more in the works!

The efforts of our MNopedia volunteers have helped us reach the following milestones:

  • October 2018: the MNopedia website hit the 1 millionth unique user mark
  • February 2019: MNopedia reached not only 3 million page views but also more than 1.5 million unique sessions on our website
  • MNopedia will be able to launch Phase I of the Minnesota Place Names project as scheduled by the end of June, then it will be on to Phase II: Lakes, Rivers, and Streams.

So, for the countless trips they took down the History Rabbit Hole and their many valued contributions to MNopedia . . . Thank you, MNopedia volunteers and interns!
