Ready to take on your next clean water challenge? Join more than 300 Minnesotans from across the state at the 2018 State of Water Conference to get the tools, resources, and connections you need to make real change in your community’s water resources.

The biennial State of Water Conference brings together community members, lake and river associations, and staff from water resource organizations and agencies to build relationships and learn about recent updates in the work of protecting and caring for our lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands.
