Originating in Lake Osakis near Osakis, MN, the Sauk River flows
miles before entering into the Mississippi River near
the town of Sauk Rapids, MN. This scenic river is severely threatened by discharges and runoff from
sources such as septic systems, stormwater, feedlots and
agricultural fields. Much needs to be done to protect
the river and to restore it to its original beauty.
The Friends of the Sauk River is a non profit organization
whose mission is to improve, protect, and enjoy the
natural resources of the Sauk River Watershed.
The Friends of the Sauk River
are involved in: organizing and participating in river celebrations, river cleanup
days, monitoring programs, and many more activities.
