Why Boat Inspections?
Because it is the only way to prevent the introduction of Aquatic Invasive Species into the lake. LGLA has been doing CB/CW boat inspections since 2004 and many times inspectors have found AIS on a boat about to enter the lake. It is critical that we continue to do boat inspections as many hours per week as possible.

For 2017 we have received a WDNR grant to contract people to do inspections on the weekends and holidays when all of us would rather be enjoying time with family and friends. So your volunteer time doing inspections will be providing "double value" this year. We will earn a $12/hour credit for every hour you volunteer which goes toward our share of the grant expense, and, together with the contract inspectors, we will be doing many more hours of inspections than in the past.

A schedule for signing up to volunteer at the landing will be posted on this page in the near future. 

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT OUR LAKE!

  • Ask boaters if their watercraft has been used during the past 5 days on a different body of water, and if so identify that waterbody for tracking/trending purposes.
