Lake Steward Program on Gull Lake with Dorothy Whitmer
Minnesota Lakes and Rivers Advocates launched Lake Steward to support lake associations as they improve water quality, increase lake association visibility, and boost membership efforts.
Lake Steward has succeeded where other efforts have failed, by using a quiz to get lakeshore owners interested, and then making contact which is personal and centered on the individual lakeshore owner, their family, and their relationship to their land and the water. Lake Steward, by its nature, builds the feeling of community around the lake while improving water quality.
Project Wet is a detailed training that will provide curriculum for any situation; for teachers in a classroom, for a lake advocate at a lake association meeting, for a volunteer at a street fair or festival booth, at a presentation for a group like 4-H, scouts, summer camp, resort or campground, nature center, or a school club.
