You are invited to attend public meetings in Kenora on August 15, starting at 2pm at the Clarion Lakeside Inn. 

The meetings highlight "from science to action" and the efforts to protect and restore Lake of the Woods water quality by the International Joint Commission, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Anyone interested in the long-term health of the Lake of the Woods, the research being done to address toxic and nuisance algae in Lake of the Woods and the actions being taken is encouraged to attend.
