The Lake Wisconsin Alliance (LWA) is hosting its second educational seminar for 2017 at the Lodi Women’s Club Public Library on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 6:00pm. This free event will focus on aquatic invasive species found in Lake Wisconsin, and best management practices residents and visitors of the lake can implement to prevent their spread further and into other waterways.
The presenter for the evening will be Neil Slifka, Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with Southwest Badger Resource Conservation & Development Council. Currently, Lake Wisconsin is home to at least five aquatic invasive species: Curly-Leaf Pondweed, Eurasian Watermilfoil, Flowering Rush, Purple Loosestrife, and the Zebra Mussel. Once established, these species are incredibly difficult to control and even more difficult to eliminate. Neil will provide information about these invasive species and provide recommendations on how to control and prevent their spread.
The Lake Wisconsin Alliance (LWA) is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization that endeavors to balance the diverse interests of the Lake Wisconsin community while improving water quality, recreational opportunities, and sustaining a healthy ecosystem within the Lake Wisconsin watershed.
