Walter J. Breckenridge Chapter Izaak Walton League of America

The public is welcome to this social/educational meeting on May 22, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Breckenridge Chapter House of the Izaak Walton League of America, 8...816 West River Road, Brooklyn Park. For more information call 763-421- 6781.

David Zentner of the Duluth Izaak Walton League, two-time National Conservationist of the Year and former President of both the National and Minnesota Division Izaak Walton League will present a forum on the Upper Mississippi River (UMR) Project. This is a four-state initiative (IA, IL, MN, WI) to move forward our Clean Water Act goal set back in 1972 to make all the waters of these United States fishable and swimmable. It strives to instigate methods of cooperation between urban and suburban land owners, farmers, businesses and local government leaders and to understand the needs, wants and perceptions of each. How to monitor streams, tributaries and their watersheds to the river will also be discussed. “Our work to date includes citizen water quality monitoring with a purpose. It includes reaching out to global agricultural corporations. We’ve visited with farmers and colleague organizations. We’ve secured foundation funding. We have important “off-shoot” projects! There does appear to be an awakening, a buzz about bringing land and food production into better harmony with clean water, healthy soils, and wildlife. Yet, also embracing improved farm economic stability.”
