Here are some other simple things you can do to help our local watershed in Orono, Medina & Long Lake.


  • Help LLWA pool our collective strength as a community by becoming a Member and/or donating to Long Lake Waters Association (LLWA).  Your donation will help us put science-based solutions into action in the watershed and provide  education.  
  • Go for a walk and explore the many trails, lakes, creeks and wildlife in the two regional Scientific and Natural Areas (SNA) right here in our community - Wolsfeld Woods and Wood-Rill. 
  • Our Watershed is part of the larger Minnehaha Creek Watershed - join the MCWD e-Newsletter and subscribe to Splash for valuable information about the water issues and events in the area. 
  • Plant a rain garden to help filter runoff pollution and protect the lake and streams, while conserving water and creating habitat for birds and butterflies. Local nurseries can help you make a plan, here are two that would love to help... 
  • Consider becoming a Master Water Steward. MWS are sponsored by their local watershed district and are educated about water quality issues in their local region. 
  • Connect on social media and share your photographs of the watershed!!
