Treasures Under Pressure:
The Future of Northeastern Minnesota Lakes

Dates:  Friday, September 11 at the Best Western Edgewater East in Duluth, or 
Saturday, September 12 at Itasca Community College in Grand Rapids.

Northeastern Minnesota is blessed with a wealth of beautiful, healthy lakes.  
Now it's time to take a good look at these blue gems and make some decisions on 
how best to keep them healthy for the long run. Lakes in Northeastern Minnesota 
are experiencing some of the same development and use pressures that lakes in 
other more populated areas of the state have seen for years.  How will we deal 
with these pressures and uses?

The University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program is leading an effort to bring 
people interested in Northeastern Minnesota lakes together to define issues and 
to generate ideas for solutions.  Two separate public workshops will be held in 
Duluth and Grand Rapids.  

Come talk about your concerns and hear the concerns of others.  Share your 
hopes, ideas and plans for the future of Northeastern Minnesota lakes.  Learn 
from lake experts about how to maintain the quality of our lakes and fisheries. 

A nominal registration fee will be charged.  Space is limited.  For more 
information or to pre-register, contact Keith Anderson, Minnesota Sea Grant, 
1-800-455-4526, e-mail: kanderson1@extension.umn.edu.
