In the fall of 2021 we welcomed interest in the problem of human waste disposal and removal during the Ice Fishing Season. We started a dialogue with the Beltrami County Soil and Water Conservation District about our shared concerns and efforts to mitigate. A committee was formed to do the hard work of promoting and implementing a sustainable approach to a complex problem.

In the fall of 2022, the Association erected two new billboard signs along Highway #72, five miles south and north of Waskish.


The URLAA provides funding, through grants, for good work in our area.  In 2021 we gave over $32,000.00 to successful applicants. Go to Grants/Membership to learn more. 


We are grateful for the years of volunteer service of past members and look forward to the support of current members. If you would like to join us, visit our Membership link.  Your voice is important and your help is always appreciated.
