Lake Steward Program

My name is Lily Carr and I am an environmental policy major about to begin my junior year of college at the University of Minnesota. I just joined Minnesota Lakes and Rivers Advocates as an intern and I am so excited to be running the Lake Steward program this summer! I will approach this task with experience in soil science, environmental science, climate studies, and environmental policy. 

Please reach out to me if you have questions about MLR’s Lake Steward program or want to start Lake Steward on the lake you love. I can provide the tools and training you will need to protect your lakes shoreline and water quality.

The Lake Steward program is about educating and empowering individuals so they can take responsibility for their shoreline and maintain healthy water quality through sustainable land management practices. This is done through the coordinated efforts of willing lakeshore property owners and lake association volunteer shoreline evaluators. The first step is for property owners to take the “are you a lake steward” quiz on the MLR website. Finding ways to increase the number of people kicking off this process by taking the quiz is one of our main goals. 

We want to spread the awareness that people have the power to protect Minnesota’s water from their own backyards! Fostering the parallel ideas of responsibility and empowerment can create change in big ways.

I grew up playing in Minnesota’s lakes with my friends and family, and I plan for my grandchildren to be able to do the same thing.  

I look forward to working with all of you fellow lake-lovers this summer!
