Love Our Waters event in Outing

Web posted August 8, 2017
The first ever Love Our Waters event was held Saturday, August 5th in Luscher’s Park in downtown Outing. This unique event, presented by Screen Porch Productions and Go NorthMN, paired two unlikely components: science and performance. Pictured top left: Performers included the Lake Washburn Association Historians, "The Lore of Lake Washburn: 100 Year History”, and musician Faith Boblett; Second left: Event organizer Therese Kunz; Bottom left: The popular Water Education Tent featured demonstrations and resources by several service organizations regarding AIS watercraft decontamination stations, water quality maps of area lakes, identification of Zebra Mussels and Eurasian Milfoil, area waterway history, conservation easements, and the Line 3 Replacement pipeline information; Included Saturday was a dedication of a Roosevelt Lake family property for an Aquatic Management Area by Alan Eggers (third left). The dedication was the culmination of an 8-year effort spearheaded by the Eggers family and Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation. - photos by Paul Boblett
