Founded in 1992, Clean Up the River Environment (CURE) is a private, nonprofit organization working to celebrate, protect, and restore the Upper Minnesota River Watershed.  Grounded in the support and wisdom of real people living on the land, CURE engages the community in finding transformational and systemic solutions to the problems threatening our watershed environment.

Widely known as a rural, community-based, grassroots leader, CURE shares what it knows and draws on the expertise of others through regional and nation-wide network collaborations.

CURE’s office is located in downtown Montevideo, Minnesota.
