Cannon River Watershed Partnership

We partner with people and organizations to value, protect, and improve the Cannon River Watershed’s land and water.

Rivers and Lakes Need Your Help

Let’s be honest, 2020 was not a good year from most of us. We’ve had to isolate ourselves from others to stay healthy. Many of us have dealt with COVID-19 as patients or care-givers. But amid all the challenges of 2020, there have been a few bright spots. And one of the biggest bright spots is how Minnesotans have come together to tackle the pandemic. We’ve shown that by working together, we can tackle any challenge. 

But that’s not all we did this year. We also held the 12th Annual Cannon River Watershed-Wide CleanUP on September 19th with an almost record-setting number of volunteers, 15% more than in 2019. Folks wore masks and worked in family groups. 

Our Conservation Program continued to host workshops and field days, outdoors and with masks on. Over the past three years cover cropped acres have doubled in the region, thanks to the work of CRWP and other project partners. The number of farmers using cover crops in our area has more than doubled, from 97 to 238.

New or increased donations made to CRWP by Dec. 31, 2020 will be matched by a generous gift of $10,000 from the
CRWP Board of Directors.
