For crew locations: AJ Petersen, 218-838-3124

Project dates: July 13 – October 1

Sites: Pomme de Terre River near Morris, North Fork of the Crow River near Litchfield, Snake River near Pine City and Mora

Working from kayaks and canoes, Minnesota Conservation Corps crews are gathering scientific data in central Minnesota to determine if sections of waters are impaired, including the Pomme De Terre, Snake and North Fork of the Crow Rivers. Two crews of five young adults will work sections of the rivers to document pollutant and stressor sources, validate land use and gather geomorphic data. Conservation Corps crews are assisting the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
