Comfort Lake-Forest Lake Watershed District (CLFLWD) has maintained and improved the health of our local water ways for many years. The water quality improvement projects implemented by the CLFLWD have gotten area lakes (including Forest, Comfort, and Bone) over 92% of the way to meeting state water quality standards. Improved water quality equals cleaner and clearer water for generations to come.
This fall, the Watershed District will be hosting several community education workshops and events.
Aquatic Plants Youth Experience
September 14th | 3:00 – 5:00pm @ Hardwood Creek Library
Stop by the children’s section at Hardwood Creek library for some hands-on learning! They’re green, they’re slimy, and maybe a little bit gross, but we love them anyway. Aquatic plants play an important role in keeping our lakes healthy, learn how they do it and how you can help.
Aquatic Plants Workshop
September 14th | 5:30-6:30pm @ Hardwood Creek Library
Do you have lake shore property? Are you struggling with managing aquatic plants? Curious about how aquatic plants impact water quality? Then this workshop is for you!
