The Future of Water


September & October Theme

Why Designate a Year of Water?

The Freshwater Society and partners want to raise the awareness among citizens about our water resources and how we can protect them in our everyday lives. We are providing education resources as well as activities for taking action to protect our lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands and groundwater. From snow and ice to lakes and rivers, we will be covering six water topics in twelve months! Check back here frequently as we will be posting new information all year long.



What will Minnesota’s lakes, rivers and streams look like in 50 years? And will we have a clean and abundant supply of water for drinking, now and for generations to come?
