Live on a lake? Own property on a lake? Spend a chunk of time playing or fishing or engaging in various other lake-related recreating?
Then Tuesday evening you might want to consider attending a free meeting being held from 6:30-8pm at the Board of Commissioners Meeting Room in White Cloud.
For the third straight year Drain Commissioner Dale Twing is bringing together a panel of presenters who each possess expertise in various approaches to lake management for the Healthy Lake Forum.
The County Drain Office sponsors these free forums to provide an opportunity for waterfront property owners and others with a stake in the lakes to hear a broad spectrum of best practices for lake management that go beyond chemical weed control.
With N3 World Headquarters and Thistle Seed Repository located on a lake staff members have attended each of the previous meetings and found them to be both educational and enlightening.
The informal setting provides an opportunity to dialogue and ask questions of the presenters and the interaction allows for various concerns to be discussed.
This year features Tony Groves of Progressive Engineering who brings 25 years of experience working with lake communities on watershed management issues to the table.
Also on tap is Erick Elgin of the MSU Extension. Erick is an absolute treasure trove of inland lake information with an obvious passion for the work and a knack for simplifying information without diluting its content.
This forum is a must for folks who live on our lakes because it helps provide the most powerful tool we can possess in the quest to provide the level of stewardship our lakes deserve.
