Our final board meeting of 2021, and another bat survey

The final LOFA board meeting of 2021 is scheduled for this Sunday, September 5 at 10:00 at Beavers. Anyone interested is welcome to attend! And here is the map from our bat survey of July 22. Usually our mid-year survey detects 5 species, but this year we only detected 3. The good news is that our Little Browns are still with us in spite of their population decline due to White Nose Syndrome. The final bat survey, is scheduled for September 7-9. Our surveys are part of a project run by the Wisconsin DNR and the North Lakeland Discovery Center.

 

It’s hard to believe that autumn is upon us already. If anyone gets some good photos of fall color around the lake send them to lofassociation@gmail.com and we’ll post them in our gallery – or upload them to our Lake of the Falls Facebook page!

Together again

The Lake of the Falls Association Membership Meeting and Annual Picnic on Sunday couldn’t have been nicer with 29 people attending the meeting and 47 at the picnic. It was great to get back together with everyone after such a long absence and find out what’s been going on around the lake! Thanks to Board President Jan Tesch for organizing everything and to Tom and Nikki at Beaver’s for providing the great food.

 

Board member Bill Dalpiaz reported on his latest conversation with WDNR Fisheries Biologist Zach Lawson about the recent Walleye count in the lake; the official results of the test, including population estimates, can be read here. And board member Cindy Moriarity talked about the aquatic invasive plant Curly Leaf Pondweed, which is present upriver and is a serious threat to Lake of the Falls, and managed to recruit four new volunteers to help next summer in our effort to keep it under control. Yay!
