For the last few years the Kelly Lake community has faced the introduction of Eurasian milfoil to the lake; an aggressive weed-growth that takes over lake with a thick, nexus-surface plant, rooting up from the bottom, squelching out normal aquatic weeds and threatening fish population, boating, swimming and property values.
Efforts by Kelly Lake’s Mary Marks, Rebecca Fabry and their committee have been trying to nip it in the bud—champion a campaign to eradicate milfoil by collaborating with the DNR and an agency specializing in ridding the water environment of the weed.
Members from the agency were out this morning taking weed samples. Treatment is planned again this year in the immediate future.
This important endeavor can be followed in the column at the right, under “Categories”: “Aquatic Invasive species…” Please take the time to read.
Awareness is important; there’s a lot at stake! Stay informed! Roger
