Mille Lacs Lake Watershed Tour
October 5, 2017
Thursday October 5th, 2017 was a beautiful fall day! Mille Lacs Lake Watershed Management Group members and friends joined together for a tour of shoreland best management practices. The tour visited a variety of sites and learned how landowners are working to protect water quality while enhancing their enjoyment of their properties. This was a great opportunity for participants to learn about the steps that their neighbors are taking to protect water quality. Watch for more events like this in the future!
