Volunteer to protect Lake of the Falls

The Rice Lake Association’s website now features a sign-up  page where we can volunteer for specific days during Week 1 (May 31-June 4) and/or Week 2 (June 6-June11) of their 2022 Pondweed Pull.  More information is available on their website. And they have started a Facebook page with some impressive photos from last year’s Pull.

 

The Iron County Land and Water Conservation Department is coordinating volunteers to paddle and pull weeds in the Turtle River between Pike Lake and Rice Lake, and into the southern basin of Rice Lake, on June 6, 7, 8 and 9, and here is where you can go to sign up for that.

 

Pike Lake Neighbors Inc. has this page on their website outlining the aquatic invasive species they’ve found there, and will be planning hand-pulling events throughout the summer.

 

In the past few years on Lake of the Falls we’ve found some Yellow Flag Iris along the riverbed north of the lake, and there’s some growing near the channel into First Black. That’s the only Aquatic Invasive Species we’ve found in our lake (that we know of) and it would be great to keep it that way. But our neighbors upriver need our help to prevent the spread of CLP into LOTF and beyond, so let’s get out there and do what’s needed to protect our lake!
