The Field Report of the EWM remedial activities conducted by our Association and the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians (GTB) in 2021 is now available on our website. This 32-page report, which contains many maps and photographs, describes how LLLA and GTB succeeded in greatly reducing large and dense beds of EWM in South Lake Leelanau, using three different methods with varying degrees of success. The report also describes how underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) photography is being used to track native aquatic vegetation affected by EWM and ortho-mosaic aerial drone photography to map additional EWM infestations for treatment in 2022 and beyond. Click on this link to read or download our 2021 EWM Field Report. You’ll find the Key Findings on page 6.

We Need Lake Stewardship Volunteers!
As our Association’s activities keep growing, so does the need for volunteers in our programs. For 2022, we’re looking for volunteers in the following lake stewardship areas:

  • Invasive species education, prevention, remediation and monitoring
  • Shoreline stewardship
  • EGLE shoreline permit review
  • Kids’ Fishing Day

If you’re interested in volunteering any of these areas, please contact Lonnie Rademacher at  [email protected] or 517-303-9616. You can see details of each of the volunteer responsibilities and time commitments by clicking on this link.
