Rainy River Headwaters watershed

Lake County SWCD coordinates civic engagement activities in the Rainy River Headwaters watershed of northern Lake County.  This work includes coordinating stream and lake monitoring activities with volunteers, funded by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.  Additionally, work is being conducted through Initiative Foundation and Sea Grant funding sources to mitigate the spread of invasive species.  These activiites include coordinating volunteers for education, monitoring, and management of rusty crayfish, as well as completing an assessment on the effectiveness of alternative crayfish control practices within the watershed.
