The County received multiple reports of a concerning black substance that had washed up along the NE shoreline on Green Lake. After we received the first call, Camden and I went to investigate and collect a sample.
The black substance appeared to be some sort of very small aquatic seed so we sent images to our aquatic plant expert at EOR, Jimmy Marty. Jimmy provided a surprising diagnosis, daphnia eggs!! Daphnia (aka water flea) are a very small freshwater crustacean that eat algae and are a sign of a healthy lake!
Feel free to reach out with any additional questions.

Our 2nd Annual Music on the Water was a great time had by all!
Even though mother nature did not give us the warm sunny Summer weather we like, we still had 100+ boats, time was spent with friends/family, eating yummy food from Frank N Patty's all while listening to great music from The After Hours Band!
We could not do this event without our board, volunteers and members. If you enjoy this event, please consider donating so we can keep this event coming back year after year!
