Ever wonder where and why conservation practices are put in place? The cities of Brainerd and Baxter utilized new technology and science to predetermine what people do on the landscape and where.
“This process has identified pollution hot spots and practices that can improve the health of the Mississippi River,” said Beth Hippert, Crow Wing Soil and Water District technician.
Join the Brainerd Area Environmental Learning Network (BAELN) from 3-4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Crow Wing County Land Services Building, 322 Laurel St. Brainerd to learn about city findings and work along the Mississippi River. Discover more about conservation planning and learn of the success of these programs.
BAELN events are free and open to public. BAELN meets on the third Thursday of month from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The BAELN event is sponsored by: Central Lakes College, Central Regional Sustainable Development Partnership, citizen representation, Crow Wing Soil and Water Conservation District, Initiative Foundation, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota Department of Transportation, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, The Nature Conservancy, and University of Minnesota Extension.
