I was literally BLOWN AWAY by this trip! They went above and beyond all of our expectations , I will reccommend them to everyone I know!


Fishing and Boating Season!

Winter 2020

We at WWUMN love to enjoy the outdoors. Just remember to be responsible. With the fishing and boating season upon us, keeping yourself and your families safe is a priority, always wear your life jackets and don’t drink and boat. Alcohol is involved in about 30 percent of fatal boat accidents in Minnesota. Drunk boating is drunk driving — designate a sober ride on the water and on the road.


Arbor Month—May 2019—Plant Trees For Clean Water

May 2019

Everything from tree roots to leaves plays a role in keeping our water in lakes, rivers, and aquifers clean. This is important because 75 percent of Minnesotans get their drinking water from the forested parts of the state.


Pressure Ridge Dangers

Extremely thin and weak ice is the result of a pressure ridge forming. This can happen on any body of water at any time during the ice season. Lives have been lost when traveling on ice that does not support the weight of your vehicle. Check ice recommendations.
