Pine River Watershed Alliance sets June 21 annual meeting

The meeting will include a progress update on the One Watershed, One Plan and a presentation about Up the Creek Meats.

We are part of The Trust Project.

IDEAL TOWNSHIP — The Pine River Watershed Alliance annual business meeting will be held from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, at the Ideal Community Center just off Crow Wing County Road 16. All guests are welcome.

In addition to the normal business meeting, there will be two presentations. The first will be a progress update on One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P).

The work portion of the master plan to protect both the waters (more than 400 lakes and almost 600 miles of stream and rivers) and preserve the land (more than one-half million acres of land) in the Pine River Watershed was initiated in June 2020. Learn how 1W1P is working to ensure the area where we live, work and play will be here for generations to come.

The second presentation will be about a simple program that connects lake associations with farmers who protect water. By participating in the Up the Creek Meats program, lake associations are not only taking direct action to improve water quality on the lake they love, helping to build a new local food market that protects the water quality and quality of life in their community, but also provide the highest quality meat and vegetables for their members.

Learn how this program works and how you can benefit in many ways.


The regular board meeting will follow the annual meeting from 4-6 p.m. Guests are welcome at both the annual business meeting and the regular board meeting.
