LA CROSSE, Wis. -- La Crosse is playing host to a small delegation of international educators.

Six environmental educators from Russia are touring our area and learning what our area has to offer. They started in Washington D.C. last week and made their way here.

So far, they've spend time at the Ecopark, some schools, and Wiscorps. They're spending a lot of time learning about recycling since it's a fairly new idea in Russia. "It's important to learn from this experience, this American experience," says Delegate Yevgeniya Yeremina.

They'll be in La Crosse until the end of the week when they return home.
