South Washington Watershed District celebrates 25 years

The South Washington Watershed District will celebrate its 25th anniversary and the many flood-prevention, habitat restoration, and water-quality improvement projects accomplished.

South Washington is the largest watershed management organization in Washington County, covering portions of Oakdale, Lake Elmo, Woodbury, Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, Grey Cloud Township, Afton and Denmark Township.

On Oct. 11, South Washington Watershed District will hold a small anniversary celebration at its oak-savanna prairie on the Woodbury-Cottage Grove border. The celebration will include a volunteer planting event from 2:30-4:30 p.m., followed by an informal open house 4-6 p.m.
