Preserving and Enhancing the Lake Minnetonka Experience since 1967

The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) brings together 14 different cities, two counties, and many state and local agencies to protect, preserve and enhance Lake Minnetonka’s environment, economy and vitality. We are one, uniform, coordinating body that cares for and regulates one of Minnesota’s most important resources in a way that is consistent across all jurisdictions, representing all stakeholders. Lake Minnetonka is a unique asset requiring unique governance. Learn more about the LMCD’s mission and strategic plan HERE and highlights of the organization’s history HERE.
