The island is a rest stop for boaters, kayakers and people fishing, and swimming. It also offers the public a place to picnic.
we planted flowers to beautify roads and crossroads around the lakes.
with the grant from the wi department of natural resources we are in the process of analyzing the north lake water for invasive species. We also run a clean boats clean water program with volunteers inspecting boats from other lakes before the boat enters our water in order to prevent invasive species from spreading.
we provided fireworks on the fourth of july which is attended by people from our lakes and several surrounding counties.
