Water, water everywhere, but not a drip in the sink

The Land of 10,000 Lakes actually contains more than 12,000 lakes and 92,000 miles of streams and rivers. In addition, Minnesota boasts an abundance of ground water resources.
Fresh water supplies such as these are essential to our quality of life in many ways. Water is a necessity for human health as well as the health of crops, livestock and other living organisms. Water is also required to produce energy and manufacture countless products. Although freshwater is plentiful in Minnesota, it is not limitless. Conservation efforts today will help ensure a future with abundant water resources.

More than a swim

Females-only swim brings together diverse cultures, views in Maplewood
A females-only swim time in Maplewood has become much more than an opportunity to get into the water.
Over the past two years, organizers have watched women and girls from a variety of backgrounds, religions and cultures find common ground while they learn to swim and enjoy snacks and conversation afterwards. The program, which is funded by the Educational Equity Alliance, even garnered an award in late 2013 from the Minnesota Community Education Association, and it continues to be a unique offering in the Twin Cities.
