The Northern Waters Land Trust has launched a social media campaign to promote positivity about the lakes in northern Minnesota.

The organization encourages individuals to share their favorite picture depicting why they love our lakes on the organization’s Facebook page between now and July 15. Eligible participants will be put into a drawing for one of five prize packages, each valued at approximately $50 and coming from local businesses.

Additionally, if the participant mentions a lake association or similar organization in the four-county area, that organization has a chance to win a $500 conservation grant. The more times an organization is mentioned, the more chances it gets.

To learn more about the campaign and rules for participating, check out Northern Waters Land Trust Facebook page.

Northern Waters Land Trust, formerly the Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation, is a nonprofit charitable 501(c)(3) organization working in north central Minnesota in the counties of Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, and Aitkin. For more information, go to
