LOOKING TO THE FUTURE!
The Northern Waters Land Trust (NWLT), formerly the Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation, strives to preserve land to protect water in the four-county region of Cass, Crow Wing, Aitkin and Hubbard counties. This area includes not only Leech Lake, but 800 of Minnesota’s 4,500 managed fishing lakes!
To help us complete our name change, rebranding and accreditation process, we’re pleased to announce we have a new Executive Director! Lake Shore resident Kathy Moore brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to NWLT, including an expansive background in advertising, marketing and public relations, as well as fundraising.

The Northern Waters Land Trust (formerly the Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation) is a regional 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to preserving and protecting the quality of the pristine lakes, rivers, and streams; healthy forests; and critical fish and wildlife habitats of the Leech Lake Watershed and surrounding counties in North Central Minnesota.
