The Word is Out—We Want Our Lake Pristine!
The costs to control Eurasian watermilfoil are staggering. One lake community has budgeted $70,000 to mow the watermilfoil on their 2000 acre lake.
Many two-hour inspection slots remain open. Please consider donating your time, perhaps two hours a month. Call our boat landing inspection coordinator, Nancy Edwards, 715-358-3016 or contact the town hall, 715-588-3358, for more information. No experience is necessary and new volunteers will be paired with experienced inspectors.
For those interested, there will be a “Clean Boat-Clean Water” training
sessions during 2008 held at the LdF town hall. Please register by contacting the town hall, 715-588-3358.

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 7156042602Read More Read ALL
