The Mississippi Headwaters Board (MHB) received an acknowledgement letter signed by Governor Mark Dayton thanking them for their work of protecting the Mississippi River.

The letter read, in part, "Your Joint Powers Board is an exemplary model ... because it allows for decisions to be based upon local expertise and consensus."

Executive director Tim Terrill said the recognition was a result of the combined efforts of the MHB and its partner organizations working together. The MHB is a Joint Powers Board whose mission is to enhance and protect the outstanding and unique natural, scientific, historical, recreational and cultural values in the first 400 miles of the Mississippi River from its source at Lake Itasca in Clearwater County to the southerly boundary of Morrison County.
