Green Lakes Chisago City MN President corner

Invasive weed treatment update. We’ve had a busy summer with weed treatments. I’m pleased to report that the Chisago county Lake Improvement District and the Minnesota DNR have been providing monetary assistance with our treatments this year. We have treated 80 acres of Eurasian Milfoil in seven different areas on Big and Little Green Lake. We’re already making plans for 2013 and the process starts early. Mapping the problem areas for invasive vegetation is very important and this is done when we can see the problem areas the summer before we treat. We hope to extend the treatments in 2013 and include an extensive Curly-leaf Pondweed treatment in May. Treating Curly-leaf is challenging because the treatment is done before the weeds come up and the conditions need to be right for a treatment to have an effect. Water temperature and wind conditions need to be right and the maps made the summer before are critical. Your charitable donations and membership fees are critical to our efforts. Please become a member and volunteer your time. We can use help in many ways including fund raising, treatments, lake cleanup etc.. Fighting invasive species on Green Lake is a lot of work and very expensive so please help us protect this valuable and precious resource that we’re so fortunate to have as our back yard.
