With that, we cover those groups around ND working to make the waters and their surrounding environments great in our Outdoors Roundup.

FRIENDLY. The Friends of Lake Sakakawea work to preserve and protect the state’s most heralded reservoir. From working to make the fishing better, and keep the waters and shorelines clean to staving off Aquatic Nuisance Species, these Friends are doing their part.
KNOWN ASSOCIATES. The Lake Region Anglers Association helps advance the huge fishery that is Devils Lake. From tournaments to family outings, the group spreads the word about what’s happening on DL and help with access for all to one of the state’s premier waters.
THE COMMISSION. The Red River Basin Commission is comprised of representatives from North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota along with Manitoba to facilitate the stewardship of the Red River of the North. They’ve got a pretty cool logo too.
