I can't remember the last time I took a walk around Silver Lake, but I may have to put that on my agenda soon because of the new interpretive trail. Now people can learn about Silver Lake as they walk around it.

The Rochester Public Works Department announced today that the installation of the Silver Lake Stormwater Interpretive Trail is complete. The twelve interpretive signs are located next to the walking path and circumnavigate Silver Lake. These interpretive signs explore the history, water connections, and stormwater management practices surrounding Silver Lake.

The twelve sign topics are: A. Canada Geese...B. Enhancing Urban Habitats...C. Native Shorelines...D. Minnesota Mussels...E. Rapid Runoff...F. Stormwater Treatment...G. Native Plant Management...H. History of Silver Lake...I. Floating Wetlands...J. Invasive Species...K. Water Connections...L. Flooding in Rochester

Here are the locations of the signs:
