MCWD Photo Contest

Our annual Earth Day Photo Contest is back!  From South Minneapolis to Watertown Township, Laketown Township to Medina, we think our watershed is incredibly photogenic. There is endless beauty on and around the 181 lakes, eight major streams and thousands of wetlands within the MCWD, and we want to see how you capture it. We encourage you to submit pictures of you, your family, and your friends enjoying the resources our watershed has to offer.

Winning entries will be featured in MCWD's annual report (first place only), e-newsletter, website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Take a look at the 2017 winners.
