"A Watershed Approach to Restoring and Protecting the Zumbro" Today, an estimated 86% of river pollution comes from widespread land use sources like erosion and runoff. Agencies like the MN Pollution Control Agency now use a “watershed approach” to find solutions to these widespread pollution problems. Justin Watkins of the Rochester MPCA will provide an overview of the process and discuss its application in the Zumbro Watershed. This is part of Zumbro Watershed Parnership's monthly "Waterways Speaker Series" - contact Kevin Strauss for more information at 507-993-3411 or email@example.com
Cascade Meadow will be closed for both Christmas and New Year's weekends. Happy Holidays to all!
Please note: Although we love our furry best friends, we must ask that you leave your dog at home. This will protect the waters of Cascade Creek, protect the growing wildlife population in our wetlands, and ensure that all visitors can have close encounters with beautiful and fascinating plants and wildlife. Thank you for your cooperation.
