Summer Splash!

Children learn to fish in a state park.

In a state with more than 10,000 lakes and with the nation's largest water trails system, we have a lot to brag about in Minnesota. Celebrate our water resources this summer by gaining a new paddling skill or exploring a stretch of river. Or learn about critical water habitats and how you can take action to help protect them for future generations. Consider one or more of the many water-themed programs listed below.
