Hello MN COLA!!

Our recent meeting in St Paul at the State Office Building (April 16) was quite interesting.  During our Forum we heard detailed presentations and discussions on the stocking of muskies by the DNR, and about the push to a Buffer Bill passed this session.  Details of the Buffer Initiative can be found on a page of this website (see menu on right side).

We also heard from Jeff Forester (MLR) on the political situation regarding water-related issues at the State Legislature.

Because time was short, we did not get to a newly proposed Water Resolution, nor did we discuss our upcoming membership drive.

Here is a detailed report on the meeting:

Our next meeting has not yet been scheduled.  It will be announced here and via our MN COLA email list, which includes both members and perspective members.  If you would like to be included on this email list or (better yet) join MN COLA, please contact Tom Nelson.
