Project Overview
The Heron Lake Watershed District is located in southwest Minnesota in the Coteau Moraines, which is known to have significant habitat loss, habitat degradation, invasive species, and pollution problems. Through this effort, the Heron Lake Watershed District intends to enhance and restore both shallow water and upland habitat in our ownership by converting 16.5 acres from brome grass to DNR prairie specialist approved native upland mix, removing accumulated sediment from 4.8 wetland basin acres, and implementing an aquatic planting of 0.6 acres.
