Watershed district celebrates 50 years with ‘make a splash’ events

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District has helped keep Minnesota waters clean for 50 years. To celebrate, the district will host a number of events through the end of the year all over the metro. District officials are calling the series, “Jump in and make a splash.”

“This is an opportunity to engage with people across the watershed,” said Telly Mamayek, the watershed district’s communications director. “Our goal is to get people involved with their lakes, streams, trees and wildlife and foster that connection.”

The first event will be April 29 at Pamela Park in Edina for storm drain stenciling. Other events will be in St. Louis Park, Carver Park, Minneapolis, Minnetrista and on Lake Minnetonka. Events will cover everything from fishing clinics to lake clean ups to seed collection events.
