Thanks to Mike Valentine for all of his leadership and work on the Crow Wing Lake LID.
Though it's hard to believe it's nearly August - I guess we just can't deny it! There still remains many sun-fun filled days on Crow Wing Lake however! We've certainly had some beauties... and we really have water!!! (Oh....and have you noticed the mosquitoes by chance!????)

Cindy and I attended a meeting in Little Falls that was hosted by MPCA. MPCA invited lake monitor volunteers from all around the state to talk about their experiences with the program. They even asked me to say a few words about what we've been doing over the last several years.
MPCA has produced a pretty interesting report about water clarity around the state that is attached to this post.
Can you believe it... it's already 4th of July time on Crow Wing Lake.... and there is lots going on!
First of all - the DNR permit to spray for swimmer's itch has been obtain and, our vendor, Central MN Aquatics will be doing the application of the copper sulfate on EARLY Thursday morning, June 30, just in time for our big weekend. Swimmers' itch is alive and well - so we're thankful our LID can provide this treatment. Let's hope that wind dies down! IF you returned your authorization form, your area rep will be delivering an ORANGE sign sometime between Tuesday evening and Wed evening. These signs will note the areas to be treated. This sign must be posted on your dock or shoreline, before Thursday morning. If you are not home, your area rep will be securing your sign to the end of your dock or someplace visible on your shoreline. Please extend a big thank you to area reps - as they have to get this job done for all of us in a very short time frame!
On Saturday, July 2, King's Ransom will be playing on the water - near the POINT around 3:00pm. Please note, this is NOT A CWLA SPONSORED EVENT, but something that has become a tradition thanks to friends of band members and many volunteers. The concert is gratis - but donations are welcomed and encouraged - so please do not forget to bring some cash out on your boats to donate to the band, when the hat is passed. The event is becoming quite popular, with many more boats than usual on our little lake. Please boat responsibly and remember: Please do not litter and keep in mind, SAFETY FIRST!
Another fun event that has become a tradition is the annual 4.4 on the 4th!
Get your shoes, bikes, trikes, or other wheels shined up... or bring your encouragement for participants and come join the fun next Monday!
