Invasives Species

Help Prevent Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS)

The Lac du Flambeau Town Lake Committee plans to monitor 7 busy boat landings, including the White Sand Lake landing, this summer. They are looking for volunteers to help with this mission. If you are willing to help fight AIS and keep White Sand Lake pristine, even for a few hours, please call the Town Hall (715-588-3358).

Purple Loosestrife arrives to White Sand Lake!

Multiple sightings of purple loosestrife were reported last year. Many of the sightings were of large single plants; however, larger patches of this invasive plant have been reported. Please review the links below and based on the info you read, please evaluate each site and choose the best method(s) of control.

We are looking for volunteers

You may have noticed a volunteer or paid individual checking boats at our boat landing. These people are with the CBCW (clean boats clean waters) program. These people help perform boat and trailer checks and educate boaters on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. We have received a grant form the DNR to help pay our U.W.Oshkosh students again this summer. We are responsible to pay back approximately 25% of this grant This can be off set with volunteer hours. We are looking for people to volunteer about 2 hours at a time just a few times in the summer. Training is required to qualify for the grant. Even if trained already the DNR asks that you do a refresher every 2 years, Dates and times are listed below. Thank you   Kris LaMarche 7156042602
