Turtle River Watershed Stewardship Project to Fight Curly Leaf Pondweed

This letter from LOFA treasurer Jack Schuett was sent to everyone on our mailing list earlier today:

LOFA members,
I received this from Dick Theide yesterday. Since this issue could potentially affect OUR lake I encourage anyone that can help do so. Please download the attached form indicating how you could help and return as indicated.
Thanking you in advance,
Jack Schuett

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! I talked this week to Zach Wilson from the Iron County Department of Land and Water Conservation, and he is planning to meet with LOFA members to discuss this problem at 1:00pm on Tuesday, May 26 (the day after Memorial Day) at Beaver’s Resort. Also, Emily Heald, the Water Program Coordinator at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, is scheduled to give a presentation on Aquatic Invasive Species identification at our annual picnic on Sunday, August 2. Details will follow when we get closer to the dates.
