Winter Salt and ice-melt, sand and dirt pollute our lakes. Minimizing their effects is a never-ending battle. It is a requirement to know the latest techniques and share them with other communities. On March 7th, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency partnered with the We Are Water MN program to offer a new Smart Salting for Local Leaders workshop in Winona. The workshop was developed and presented by a MN GreenCorps member. FLF board chairman, Jon Omvig, attended the seminar and so did Fairmont Councilmember-At-Large Michele Miller. It really takes dedication to knowledge and action to keep our lakes in good shape. One great way to help is our upcoming spring cleanup in May either as a volunteer or sponsor.
Jon forwarded some good material from the workshop. The resource document has quite a number of good links!
