The Flute Reed River is located on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Hovland, Minnesota. Once a week, Rick Schubert, who owns a cabin in Hovland, walks from his home down to the river, where he takes a reading on how much sediment is in the water. He's been doing this for the past few years, since helping start the Flute Reed River Partnership, an organization dedicated to educating themselves about the river and helping make it healthier. In this edition of the Lake Superior Project, we speak with Rick about his volunteer work on the Flute Reed, and why it is important to the health of Lake Superior.
