If you're interested in access, then you will be interested in:
Public policy development: We're at the table with the Corps of Engineers on winter and summer access policies. We are there when park fees, staffing and access roads are discussed. We stay on top of information about releases and know how to talk to when we're concerned.
What we've learn: We've been through two droughts, the tale end of one and six years of another; and a flood. We're older and wiser. We know how to fight to keep the lake at a liveable levels.
Education: Reconomics, or the dollars created by Lake Sakakawea, has been the focus of our efforts.
We also lobby to keep track of state bills impacting Lake Sakakawea. We track legislation, testify and lobby for better roads for recreational sites. We're learned how to compromise while protecting our interests.
