First Ice skim on the west end...
With high water this year early winter cattail control is encouraged.
2017 is the 5 year anniversary of the Shaver's Cattail Law. HF461 and its senate companion. Without it we would not have a lake.
This was a key step in keeping the lake a lake. We have to thank many people including Charlie, Terri & John who tirelessly went to bat for us.
Check out this short movie clip from 150' above the lake!
You can see the impact of our cattail management activities. This was a trial flight, if a flyby of your shoreline has interest to you, let us know we hope for more filming this spring.
Now we need to do come up with a cost effective way to get the accumulating biomass out and to restore the bottom...
Contact Peter with any questions.

Let's Talk Cattails
Muscrat Populations are up. They help control the cattails.
The image of Shavers Lake in the 1905 map below doesn't look at all like it is today. That's how much we have changed the shape and state of the lake. We need to be a great steward to protect this watershed from disappearing completely, which has already done in the past 30 years.
