We Are Water MN
A partnership consisting of natural resource managers from Counties, SWCD’s, and the Clearwater River Watershed District have developed a program to communicate the importance of water to residents of the Mississippi River St. Cloud Watershed. Together, the Mississippi River St. Cloud Watershed Collaborative aims to strengthen our communities knowledge of water issues and deepen the connection to protection of water, soil, wildlife habitat, and other natural resources. “We Are Water MN” is a traveling program sponsored by the Minnesota Humanities Center.
