Snails Not a Problem At Crow Wing State Park

Long stretches of the Crow Wing River, through the Brainerd Lakes Area, have been described as infested, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. 

The problem is with faucet snails, which carry a parasite that has killed thousands of diving ducks in Minnesota. 

The Crow Wing River in Wadena, Cass, Morrison, Hubbard and Todd County has picked up the warning. 

Crow Wing State Park Manager Paul Roth says he has not yet spotted the pest in the water that flows through the park.

On a more pleasant note, the Crow Wing State Park will host a voyageur canoe tour Saturday.  He says the one hour tour in a 10 person canoe is free.  Although, a state sticker is needed to enter the park. 

For more information call: (218) 825-3075.
