With Lake Superior in our backyard, it's no wonder that many in the Northland take a great interest in making sure our waterways are in the best shape possible.  To facilitate many of the initiatives in our area, the Clean Water Council was established.  The next meeting of the Clean Water Council will be held in the Duluth area, August 27-28.

According to details released by St. Louis County, the Sunday agenda includes a presentation from Dr. Robert Stemer:  Lake Superior as a Climate-Stressed Ecosystem.  Afterwards, attendees will take a tour of the Area of Concern in the St. Louis Estuary.

Monday's schedule is full, with a field excursion to tour various areas along the shore of Lake Superior between Duluth and Two Harbors.  Stops along the way include the Knife River, Bob's Cabins on Old North Shore Road, and Clover Family Farms;  each of these sites received funding from the Clean Water Legacy Funds.
