Lake Minnetonka Conservation District Gets Grant to Fight Invasive Species
The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District has earned a $10,000 grant that will be used to prevent and limit the spread of aquatic invasive species.
According to the Sun Sailor, the $10,000 grant comes from the Hennepin County Board, which doled out $200,000 between 11 grant recipients to county-based organizations that will use the funds for early detection of invasive species, inspections at public lake accesses, outreach and education, research and watercraft cleaning facilities.
The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District will reportedly use the funds to expand public access inspection times at the Carson’s Bay, Halsted Bay and Wayzata Bay boat accesses on Lake Minnetonka.
