You may have noticed that the Lakes Blog has been rather quiet since February. At the end of February, Jim Vennie, who previously managed the blog, retired after 30+ years of service with the Department of Natural Resources.
So, our blog is now beginning a new era.
Spring has truly arrived in terms of weather. People are out on our lakes. Fishing, boating, swimming, picnicking. Hundreds of volunteers and professional staff are also on the ground working to protect & improve our lakes.
Some volunteers and staff are monitoring the health of our lakes, and many are out at boat landings helping to slow the spread of aquatic invasive species, such as Eurasian Water Milfoil.
We invite you to share photographs of Wisconsin lakes & activities on lakes. We will feature some on our blog & website. Photos (.jpg, .png, .tiff) can be emailed to DNRLakeb@wisconsin.gov. Please include a description, photographer name, date taken (if known), lake name and county.
Happy mid May!
