Preparing for Summer 2014 and for the purpose of assessing our invasive weeds threat; on Sept. 12, 2013; Bob Haase, Jim Cherfoli and Doug Cooper accompanied Dr. Doug Pullman, Aquatic Ecologist, on the lake for a 3 hour tour ('The professor' was definitely in the boat but the team made it back safely without a hint of Gilligan).

Your Upper Straits Clean Lake Association weed management contributions in action! 


Here's one of a four vessel fleet harvesting the lake. USCLA has already reserved this excellent service company again this season.


Contributions last year will be invested in this year's aggressive weed management program designed to control Ebrid Water Milfoil, Curly Leaf Pondweed and other invasive species noted in the Lakescan Report.


Thanks to all who've contributed -- and those about to hit the mail for the coming season, thanks in advance!
