Lots of calls about the abundance of weeds.....

There have been several inquiries about the tangle of weeds that seems to be abundant this year. It's good that there have been some lake dwellers worried about the possibility that they might be of the invasive type. Here's what the DNR and our AIS Coordinator had to say about them.....

From The DNR and Lawrence Eslinger,  AIS Coordinator:

The nuisance weeds we're experiencing on the Northeast corner of our lake are Small Pond Weeds. They grow in 2-3 meters of water, are native and common i n Wisconsin lakes.

They are probably more prolific this year because of the warm water temperature and clarity of the water this Spring.

Glad to know that they aren't the dangerous ones, and glad that there are people keeping there eyes open and questioning.

This year’s Annual Picnic will take place at Holiday Acres Resort on Sunday August 15, 2010 at 12:30. Please bring your own meat and a dish to share with your neighbors. Beverages, Grill, and Grill Master, will be provided. We’ll cross our fingers that the weather will cooperate, but in case of rain it will be held in the Coffee Shop at Holiday Acres.

We hope to see you there, in the meantime enjoy the photo below of the Snapping Turtle which I saw on Circle Dr. This guy was about as big as Home Plate!
