CLEAN BOATS - CLEANS WATERS
In association with the DNR's "Clean Boats - Clean Waters" program, the Lake Mildred Property Owners Association and local boy scouts are working to keep Lake Mildred free of the invasive plant and animal species that are spreading to many other waters.  These so-called "Invasive Species" can take over a lake and irreversibly damage the lake's ecosystem.

Beginning with the July 4th (2005) holiday weekend, local boy scouts and association members began working together to take turns at the boat landing, meeting people who were landing their boats, to look for weeds or signs of other invasive species on their boat or trailer, to take a short survey and to inform the boat owners about the spread of invasive species.  We have found that both association members and boaters are enthusiastic about the idea of keeping Lake Mildred "pure" and clean.  Above is a photo of a few of the people helping out at the boat landing (L to R, Dave Ebben, scout John Schmitz, Dave Schmitz, and scout name?)

Slow the spread of aquatic invasive species to lakes, rivers and wetlands

The primary way aquatic invasive species spread to new waters is often through the very people who most enjoy those waters. Zebra mussels and Eurasian watermilfoil actually hitch a ride on boats and trailers and in livewells, traveling from one lake to another. It is illegal for anybody to launch a boat with zebra mussels or aquatic plants attached.
To prevent accidentally transporting invasive species:
  • INSPECT your boat, trailer and equipment and REMOVE visible aquatic plants, animals and mud before leaving the water access area.
  • DRAIN water from livewells, bilge, motor, bait buckets and transom wells before leaving the access area.
  • Empty bait buckets into the trash.
  • DRY the boat and equipment for at least five days before transferring to a new lake. If drying isn't possible, RINSE boat, tackle, downriggers and trailers with hot (above 104 degrees F) and/or SPRAY with high-pressure water.
  • Learn what invasive organisms look like. REPORT questionable species to your local DNR service center for identification assistance; preserved specimens are needed to confirm sightings.
