Tired of winter?
ICE OUT - 4:23 PM April 28th
Yes, we waited too long to get the table chopped. Have to go by boat in the next week or so...
It's not too late to do cattail clean up work this spring. The ice even after the recent melt is plenty thick underneath the slush.
Check out this short movie clip from 150' above the lake!
You can see the impact of our cattail management activities.
We have to get the accumulating biomass out of the lake which is killing off the native bottom vegetation and reducing water quality. Between the top of the water and the bottom - 85% of that muck is organic matter. Thus, we need help to keep the lake a lake and to seek to new methods to remove the unnatural build up of organic plant matter so the bottom can be restored.

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 almost happened twice in the past 30 years.
