Our Successful 2018
Year End Fundraising
We are pleased to announce that CRWP exceeded our 2018 Fundraising Goal.
Those additional funds mean that CRWP will be able to invest in even more Clean Water Projects and Programs in 2019, including the dozens of events taking place for the “Northfield Year of Water”!
Thanks gain for everyone who donated their time and resources to this campaign.
Management Areas in
the Cannon River
Imagine walking through our area forests without having to push through thick bushes of buckthorn. Imagine hiking through a prairie without seeing any six-foot-tall wild parsnip, an invasive plant that can give you severe rashes when you bump against it.
These are but a few of the goals that Great River Greening and the Minnesota DNR have for restoring four Wildlife Management Areas in the Cannon River Watershed.
Wildlife management areas (WMAs) are part of Minnesota’s outdoor recreation system that have been established to protect lands and waters that have a high potential for wildlife production, public hunting, trapping, fishing, and other recreational activities. Read more.
2019 is the “Northfield
Year of Water”!
On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, the Northfield City Council passed a resolution naming 2019 the “Northfield Year of Water”
The resolution read, in part:
The Mayor and City Council proclaims 2019 to be the “Year of Water” in the City of Northfield and encourages residents, city staff, businesses, and visitors to do their part to learn about clean water issues anddo their part to keep our rivers, lakes, and drinking water clean and safe.
Thank You City of Northfield. We look forward to working with the City on clean water programs this year!
