Action Steps

Taking action doesn’t have to mean moving mountains.   If you live in Lake Crystal area, you are likely within the Lake Crystal Watershed.  That means that taking action is simple!

1. Install a rain barrel
Putting in a rain barrel reduces the amount of run-off that makes its way to our lakes.   It conserves water and reduces your water bill! Watch the video to find out how to build and install a rain barrel.

2. Plant a rain Garden
A rain garden is a shallow depression filled with flood-tolerant shrubs, flowers and grasses. They are a beautiful way to protect and enhance your yard and our lake.   Find out how here from the University of Minnesota Extension office.

3. Become a member

5. Spread the word!
Cleaning up our lakes may seem like no easy task, but one of the easiest and most effective ways is to tell your story!  Did you grow up in Lake Crystal?   Ever have a fun day of fishing with a family member or friend?   Share your story with us and those in the community.   Let others know that the lake and our community is important to you.
