Fall 2015 Newsletter: Play And Preserve

At Conservation Minnesota, we work to protect the Minnesota our members tell us they love. Year after year, protecting our lakes and rivers receives the highest marks on our annual interest survey. This is why we’ve teamed up with Coors Light to better engage Minnesotans on the health and care of the lakes and rivers we play in.

Play-and-Preserve-Coors-Square-Feature-sizeYou may have heard radio DJs promoting Thursday night events with local country singer Chris Hawkey, as well as the request to Tweet #BeerSavesLakes. Or maybe you’ve even seen one of the billboards with Conservation Minnesota’s logo. This partnership is allowing us to reach a new group of Minnesotans and create great messaging and awareness around protecting our state’s lakes.

Our final event of the season is almost here, and it’s time to take action. On Saturday, September 19th, Conservation Minnesota and Coors Light, along with registered volunteers, will be at Lake Minnetonka. Together we will be picking up trash along select beaches and helping to encourage recycling by handing out collection bags at public launches. Volunteers will gather at Lord Fletcher’s at 9 am for assignments. After the cleanup, everyone will head back to Lord Fletcher’s for a free Coors Light (21+), a Chris Hawkey concert, and other fun giveaways. To learn more and register for the event visit:

I’m very excited to get out on the water with our members. Check our website for an update on this event and the overall success of the Drink Beer Save Lakes partnership.

Together we can protect the Minnesota you love,
