This month’s webinar sponsored by the Citizen’s Lake Monitoring Network is titled Groundwater and Lakes. Something I would like to know more about! The December topic was A Trip to the Bog and it was fascinating. I’m going to be sure to find a local bog and go in June when the flowers are in bloom!
Anyone interested in learning about our groundwater can sign up here to attend the webinar (link expired) live this Wednesday, January 27 at 3:00 pm CST, or you can access all of the CLMN webinars on their YouTube page.
And coming March 8-12 is Wisconsin Water Week, a week of presentations, panel discussions, interactive conversations with experts, and more on the full range of water topics, and all taking place online. This is the reincarnation of the Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention which was held annually in Stevens Point, and which had to go virtual at the last minute in 2020 because of the pandemic. Because of that I was able to attend, and it was time well-spent. It should be even better this year!
We received this email from the ICLRA on Friday evening:
Thank you all for your support.
Today we received notice from the DNR that the Rice Lake grant had gained high scores in the DNR grant ranking. At about 5:50 PM the Mercer Town Board voted unanimously to send a letter of intentation to build a boat landing on Rice Lake as required by the Wisconsin DNR in order to approve the Rice Lake grant.
We and the people on Rice Lake, Pike Lake, Lake of the Falls and the Turtle-Flambeau thank you for your actions in support of the program to eliminate the Curly Leaf Pondweed from Rice Lake.

(Thanks to everyone who expressed support for this.)
