MLR has engaged in a new approach to policy making called Civic Governance. It is our goal to build robust local civic infrastructure around water resources at the local level.
Back in the day, most people did not trailer a watercraft from lake to lake - they rented a boat when they arrived. That method of enjoying our lakes would certainly reduce the risk of spreading Aquatic Invasive Species. Well, this summer two entrepreneurs from Minnesota are launching FLOAT, a peer to peer boat renting AP. What was old will be new again....
MLR knows that our members are anglers. Yet Lake Associations and local residents are often not percieved to be the core angling constituency in Minnesota. MLR has hired an indpendent researcher, Norman Striezeck, to conduct phone interviews and quantify your commitment and interest in fishing. So if you get a call from Norman - please pick up the call and take a few minutes to talk with him.
