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!

Migratory waterfowl, and that bear again

Any of us who were lucky enough to be on the lake for ice-off last May saw an incredible number of waterfowl migrating through our waters. Diana got these great photos of many of them. Our research told us that those little horned grebes aren’t usually common to our area, even as migrants. We were especially excited on the morning when we saw at least 40 loons through the fog, gathering near the edge of the ice.
