* More than 200 raffle items donated by folks up and down the Trail and in town. Tickets just $2 on site or at local resorts.

* Auctions – both silent and live. All for fun and lots of hand-made treasures along with bigger-ticket items.

* A commemorative T-shirt by local fashion designer Addie Gecas is available for just $15 on site and at Trail Center on weekends before the races. Adult and kids sizes available.

* All-in-fun activities for children and adults who are not racing.

* Last but not least a lucky $5 raffle ticket holder will win a red Current Designs Kestrel 120 kayak, worth $2,100! Winner will be announced just after the amazing fun-to-watch gunnel canoe race.

The kayak will be on display at Trail Center for several weekends prior to the races. Raffle tickets are available at numerous resorts and volunteers.

Flute Reed River named to MPCA Impaired Waters List

Sat, 07/16/2016 - 9:49pm

Every two years Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) creates a list of waters that do not meet water quality standards and submits that list to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

According to Miranda Nichols, MPCA Impaired Waters List Coordinator, water quality standards are defined by how much bacteria, nutrients, turbidity, mercury, etc. can be in the water before it is no longer drinkable, swimmable, or useable in other, designated ways.

Out of the 318 bodies of water the MPCA added to the state’s 2016 Impaired Waters List, Cook County only has one addition, the Flute Reed River, which Nichols says was listed because it has too much sediment.

Once a river, stream, or lake is added to the inventory of Impaired Waters, a plan is created to monitor it and fix the problem if it can be fixed. Such a plan is under way at the Poplar River in Lutsen to reduce turbidity.

Work has also been done on the Flute Reed. Cook County Soil and Water, working in collaboration with Karen Evens, Watershed Project Manager for the MPCA based in Duluth have taken corrective action to replace culverts and restore the banks of the Flute Reed River in an effort to reduce its turbidity.

Evens said the collaboration between the county and local citizens living near Flute Reed has been tremendous.
