Minnesota is home to 11,842 lakes and 6,564 natural streams and rivers. Our waters flow north to Hudson Bay, east to the Atlantic Ocean, and south to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fish in these waters, swim in them, drift down them on lazy summer afternoons. From chasing frogs through small creeks to dropping a line through the ice, we spend a lot of time in and around the water.

This Earth Day, we’re asking: what’s the quality of our lakes and rivers in Central Minnesota? And what can we do to ensure we have safe water to enjoy for generations to come?
