Cleaner Water, Heathier Soils: Year End Fundraising Campaign

We have a lot to celebrate in 2021. We did some of that celebrating at the “Cider on the Cannon” Member party on Oct. 2nd at Keepsake Cidery in Dundas.

But we have even more to be happy about. A recent study in Rice Creek showed that the cover crop fields that our farmer partners have been planting have reduced nitrate flow in the creek by 34%. This at a time when nitrate levels are RISING in rivers, lakes, and streams in the region.

Our community engagement projects continue despite the pandemic with over 200 volunteers helping with the Cannon River Watershed-Wide CleanUP this year as they pulled over 8,000 pounds of litter from area rivers, lakes, and parks.

And that brings us to you.

We need your ongoing support to keep “Making Clean Water Happen” in the Cannon River Watershed. Please make a donation of your time and resources today.
