This grant provides funding to create “Educational Recreation Sites” at city, county, and state-owned parks and public lands. These sites will use educational signs to inform the public on many watershed-related topics, including:
Amenaties will also be installed at each site (picnic tables, benches, canoe launches, etc.) to enhance the community’s use and interaction with the Zumbro River and its tributaries. The “Educational Recreation Sites” will increase river access and water education throughout the watershed, resulting in a strong sense of ownership and stewardship. Ultimately, leading to cleaner waterways and improved water quality for generations to come.
