Two Rivers Lake Mission: Preserve and protect the integrity of the lake....

Who Are We?

In the fall of 2009, Two Rivers Lake was added to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s list of Impaired Waters. We joined together then to form “Friends of Two Rivers Lake” and incorporated with the State of Minnesota as a 501C3 non-profit organization which put us in a stronger position for funding thru grants and being able to have donations be tax deductible.

Why Join?

We have many lake property owners as members and many “Friends” who don’t actually live on the beautiful lake, but care about our mission. We appreciate each and every one of our members. We continually work for a membership of 100% lake property owners and as many friends of the lake… it takes a village. Currently, everyone who enjoys the lake benefits from the Association’s work and mission.
