Curly leaf pondweed wrap-up, Fall meeting minutes, and some swans

Thanks to the Iron County Land and Water Conservation Department and our friends upriver on Pike Lake, the aquatic invasive plant Curly Leaf Pondweed has been kept out of Lake of the Falls  for another year. These links go to the Pike Lake Neighbors, Inc. website and  include a detailed overview of the problem and what Zach Wilson, his summer crew, and volunteers from Pike Lake (and a few from Lake of the Falls) have done to keep it under control in 2021. It has been a huge effort and we all owe a big thank you to the folks around Pike for the dedication and hard work they have put in to try and keep CLP contained. Here is a map showing where the largest patches CLP were found in Pike Lake this summer. A large patch very close to the Turtle River was cleared in July and more patches were pulled through the end of August.

 

This problem isn’t going to go away and we will need more volunteers to help pull weeds next summer! Details will be available when we start to organize again in the spring.
