This year not only marks the 50th celebration of Earth Day, but the 50th anniversary of the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District! The District was founded March 4, 1970 in response to a petition filed by residents for the purpose of wisely managing & conserving the District’s waters and natural resources.
Improving Your Water Resources for 50 Years
Over the last 50 years the District has been busy implementing projects and various programs to improve and protect the lakes, creeks and wetlands of the District for the benefits of the humans and critters that live here. Check out some highlights of the last 50 years in our 50th Anniversary brochure here.
Celebrations & Activities Planned
We will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary with several special activities and events this year, including a Trivia Night at the Boathouse Brothers Brewery (fingers crossed!) and a Hike the Watershed Challenge, so keep an eye out for more information!
