Thank you for visiting Polk County Association of Lakes and Rivers (PCALR). Our goal is to help serve your needs in managing and protecting Polk County’s beautiful lakes and rivers — for recreation, for wildlife, and for future generations.

Polk County’s clean waters and close proximity to the Twin Cities make it a popular recreation destination. As development and use rises, and threats from invasive species draw nearer, wise management and avid protection of our water bodies becomes paramount. To insure that the recreation we enjoy at our lakes and rivers today endures for future generations, we must live in harmony with what we’ve come here to enjoy… the water, the wildlife and the special places of Polk County.

Above all, participate! Plan to attend an upcoming meeting. PCALR brings together individuals and representatives from lake groups throughout Polk County — people who share your concerns about managing and protecting our natural resources. While you do not need a membership to attend PCALR meetings, PCALR needs and appreciates your membership and support. 

We invite your suggestions for content and improvements of this website.
