About Us

Originating in Lake Osakis near Osakis, MN, the Sauk River flows approximately 100 miles before entering into the Mississippi River near the town of Sauk Rapids, MN. This scenic river is severely threatened by discharges and runoff from sources such as septic systems, stormwater, feedlots and agricultural fields. Much needs to be done to protect the river and to restore it to its original beauty. 

The Friends of the Sauk River is a non profit organization whose mission is to improve, protect, and enjoy the natural resources of the Sauk River Watershed.

The Friends of the Sauk River are involved in: organizing and participating in river celebrations, river cleanup days, monitoring programs, and many more activities.

If you are interested in joining our organization please contact us by email. We are also on Facebook.
