Northland NEMO

NEMO (Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials) is a nationally recognized educational program for local elected and appointed decision makers addressing the relationship between land use and natural resource protection.   Northland NEMO is a collaborative of organizations in Minnesota and Wisconsin with groups currently working in the Twin Cities Metro Area and the Western Lake Superior Basin.  Northland NEMO partners work together to offer educational programming, provide resources, and create effective tools to assist and enable communities to make informed decisions regarding land use and natural resources.  Our mission is to help Minnesota and Wisconsin communities better protect natural resources while accommodating growth and redevelopment.
