Root River citizen conversations at five local events

Fri, May 30th, 2014
Posted in All The Great Outdoors

Join Root River watershed neighbors in June at five local events from Grand Meadow to La Crescent for citizen-led conversations about protecting water resources in the watershed. Portions of six counties drain to the Root River: Dodge, Fillmore, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, and Winona.

Similar events last spring helped shape strategies for reducing pollutants that are impairing the river and its tributaries for use as drinking water, for recreation and for supporting fish and other things living in the water. The upcoming June events will help identify local resources and assets for implementing land use practices that reduce pollutants in order to meet water quality standards.

The events include a light meal or snack provided by a local community organization for a free will donation. Interactive activities will allow everyone to participate in providing information for a Root River watershed plan.

Pre-registration is preferred to facilitate planning for food but is not required to attend, so please come even if it is a last minute decision. To pre-register or for more information, call 507-765-3878, ext. 3, or email donna.rasmussen@fillmoreswcd.org. Go to www.fillmoreswcd.org. for updates.

This is a one-time series with no obligations for further participation. It is organized by the Root River Citizens’ Group with support from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and University of Minnesota Extension. The events are funded by Minnesota’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.
