Cannon River Watershed Partnership

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

Cannon River Watershed Partnership Response to the Covid-19 Statewide Emergency

Until Governor Walz lifts the current statewide state of emergency, the Cannon River Watershed Partnership’s office is now open by appointment only.

CRWP staff are continuing to work either at the office or remotely. We are continuing to answer the phone and reply to email messages.

In the meantime, stay safe and thank you for doing your part to keep your fellow Minnesotans safe and healthy.
We’ll get through this by working together. Luckily, we’re really good at that.
