In addition to using good management practices to protect and improve water quality in your home, yard or farm, there are also opportunities for volunteers to help with District projects or events.
There are lots of ways you can help improve water quality!
Clean Water Clean-Up: Twice Annual Event
20 Prior Lake and Spring Lake volunteers and 20 Boy Scouts particpated in the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District’s and City of Prior Lake’s Clean Water Clean-Up Drain Stenciling event on Saturday, September 25
7 groups set off to three residential areas and the Sand Point Beach area and stenciled nearly hundreds of drains. The stencils provide a visual reminder that nothing except water should go into inlet drains.
For questions about future events, email Patty at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 952-447-4166.
Every spring and fall we host a Clean Water Clean-Up event.
Don’t miss an event! Sign-up to receive an email reminder. Email email@example.com to be added to the notification list for this free, family-friendly event.
Carp Seining Event
When the District does a carp seine to remove carp from the lakes, we often need volunteers to help sort, weigh and measure the carp we catch. Please contact Jeff Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering or want to be added to the seine notification list.
Occasional Restoration Events
The District has several shoreline and other restoration projects and occasionally needs volunteers to help out with plantings or other items. To be notified when volunteers are needed for restoration events, please email Patty Dronen at email@example.com to be added to our volunteer list.
