Biannual Lakes and Rivers Conference

The Minnesota Waters Lakes and Rivers Conference, held every two years, is one of the largest conferences in the state covering all manner of topics related to the health of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. It’s an incredible opportunity to learn from lake and stream management experts and other citizen volunteers.
