Protecting and restoring the Rum River

RUM RIVER WRAPP.  The Anoka Conservation District is leading a nine‐county effort to protect and improve the Rum River watershed. Beginning at Lake Mille Lacs, most of the Rum River is a designated Scenic and Recreational Waterway. The Rum is known for its scenic canoeing and kayaking, smallmouth bass fishing, and high water quality. This Watershed Restoration and Protection Project (WRAPP) focuses on the river that includes the streams and lakes in the watershed.

ANOKA NATURE PRESERVE.  The City of Anoka and the Anoka Conservation District are working together for the ecological restoration of a 200 acre parcel at the NW corner of Co. Rd. 7 and Bunker Lake Blvd, on the east bank of the Rum River.  The Anoka Nature Preserve is used by area residents as a passive recreational area with walking trails. The City of Anoka has established a conservation easement for the preservation and protection of the site’s natural systems, scenic character and value to wildlife. The ACD is coordinating the ecological restoration of the Preserve.
