In this video, I provide a brief review of the current aquatic management plan for invasive species and nuisance vegetation in our lake. I discuss the challenges we face, such as hybrid species and the spread of curlyleaf pondweed. I also highlight the importance of ongoing surveys and the need for a multi-year approach to maintain a healthy lake ecosystem. Watch this video to stay informed about our efforts and the next steps in the management plan. -- Jim Sharl
