Partnerships to deliver scientifically based conservation measures on the landscape that protect water quality and as a result , critical fish and wildlife populations, is the essence of the mission of the Northern Waters Land Trusts (NWLT) This video, produced by the American Fisheries Society, explores the purpose, strategies and outcomes that the NWLT uses to support the work of the Department of Natural Resources to protect highly sensitive lakes that help sustain the cisco and other fisheries in Ten Mile Lake near Hackensack in Cass County.

– From the Chair of the Board of Directors, Tim Bremicker.

Fisheries Managers,
We worked with AFS and an independent production company on a promotional video highlighting our watershed protection work in cisco lakes done in collaboration with Forestry and NGO partners in north-central MN. The footage in the video was shot on Ten Mile lake in Cass County. The video is one segment of a larger production called “Fisheries Strong,” which premiered at the joint AFS-TWS Annual Meeting in Reno, NV https://afstws2019.org/sessions/afs-film-fisheries-strong-hosted-by-afs/# during September. The video can be accessed using the link below.
