      Our route is part of the mile Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, easily accessible via the Great River Road. This national scenic byway traces the Mighty Mississippi from its headwaters in northern Minnesota down to the Gulf of Mexico. This investigation of six Mississippi River Headwaters Lakes Gull Lake, Leech Lake, Pine River, Pokegama, Sandy and Winnibigoshish, centers on all water resource problems involving the operation of Corps dams. The study includes a review of lake operation plans for flood control, water supply, recreation, navigation, power, and conservation review of erosion control problems downstream of.

      The Mississippi River gets its start in Minnesota, and its headwaters at Itasca State Park are a must-see destination. Follow this 3-day itinerary along the Great River Road as it takes you north from the Twin Cities to trace the Mississippi on its arc across northern Minnesota. In response to the drought, the St. Paul District, Corps of Engineers reviewed the low flow portion of its water control plan for the Mississippi Headwaters lakes projects. This review concludes that the routine flow discharge rates for each project lake are adequate for present needs. However, some institutional aspects need updating.

        Dick and Barb Schuh protected their Mississippi riverfront property from development through a Reinvest in Minnesota easement. As of March, landowners working through the Mississippi Headwaters Habitat Corridor Project have protected 13 miles of shoreline through 10 easements and three fee-title acquisitions. The Mississippi River begins at Lake Itasca, MN. From there, it flows north and east into a series of lakes before turning back south and west to where it becomes navigable near Coon Rapids, MN.
