Becker County COLA

Please join us at the Detroit Lakes Holiday Inn on Thursday at 6pm for our final meeting of the 2019 season featuring Jeff Forester, Executive Director of Minnesota Lakes & Rivers Advocates.

Jeff Forester has been the Executive Director of Minnesota Lakes and Rivers (MLR) for over a decade. MLR seeks to protect Minnesota’s lake and river heritage for current and future generations by forging powerful links between lakes, lake advocates and policy makers. Jeff was Hubert Humphrey Public Policy Fellow and and Shannon Leadership Fellow. His book, Forest for the Trees, How Humans Shaped the Northwoods(Minnesota Historical Society Press) examines fire and forestry in northern Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. He was associate producer of TRANSPLANT, A GIFT FOR LIFE, which won an midwestern Emmy. MLR believes that much work can be done at the local level to protect water, and that there is a significant role for citizens to play. Our agencies and public resource managers cannot protect and improve water in isolation. To that end MLR works to build civic infrastructure around water in local communities, and to build the capacity of partnerships to protect Minnesota’s most valuable resource, our lakes and rivers.

Jeff lives with his wife, two daughters, two dogs and five chickens in Uptown Minneapolis, but spends as much time as he can on family land adjacent to the Boundary Waters. See MoreSee Less
