Angling, AIS and Access   

You are Invited – Please Join the Conversation
In the land of 10,000 lakes, the ways we use and share our lakes and rivers impacts you, your neighbors, and your local communities. You are invited to come and talk with local residents, lake associations, anglers, and others interested in enjoying and protecting Minnesota’s lakes and rivers.
Conversations will focus on public access to Minnesota's lakes and rivers, providing excellent recreational fishing, and stopping the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS).

Come to one of our three August events
We are hosting three events this summer. These gatherings will be different from many other public meetings. The people who come to these events will set the agenda and lead the discussions. There will not be presentations by DNR staff. There will be conversations among local residents, lake associations, and anglers focusing on use and protection of our lakes and rivers. We will discuss how local communities can work together better to address shared concerns.
