Blue Earth County, the city of Mankato and other local partners are in the process of developing a plan to identify and prioritize wetlands for protection and restoration in Blue Earth County. The plan priorities will be based on locally-determined public values of wetland functions. Area residents are invited to complete a survey to help planners determine the local value of wetlands. Please use this link to complete the survey; https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BECWetlandPlan. Public feedback will be accepted now through October 31, 2015.
More information about wetland protection and the Blue Earth County Management Plan can be found online at; http://www.blueearthcountymn.gov/wetlandplan.
