Friends of the Root River (FORR) will hold our first Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 19th at the Chatfield Public Library meeting room. Anyone interested in learning more about the non-profit organization is invited to attend. The evening’s program will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will include a presentation by Beth Knudsen, MNDNR, about the Watershed Health Assessment Framework (WHAF). WHAF is an interactive website that provides a comprehensive overview of the ecological health of Minnesota's watersheds. Light snacks will be served starting at 6:00 before the program begins.
FORR formed as a non-profit organization this year committed to the health of the Root River. There will be additional information at the meeting about who we are, what we have done and we plan to do in the coming year.
