Conservation Minnesota

Lakes, Rivers, & Water Community Calendar

This feature is intended to help our Minnesota Waters partners spread the word about upcoming opportunities for those interested in protecting and improving the state’s waters. Sharing information and opportunities to learn, volunteer, and build capacity can help us all protect Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and watersheds.

If you would like your event to appear on the Conservation Minnesota/MN Waters Community Calendar, please send an email to info@conservationminnesota.org with the details. Thank you for helping to protect Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and watersheds!
