Attended the Michigan Lakes & Streams Assoc annual conference this weekend in Bay City. Riparian definitions, rights, etc. received from Cliff Bloom, Working with your Township to Protect Your Lake (MTA Legal Representative) and spent a large portion of the conference on water quality monitoring and invasive plant species. The plan is to really work this summer on invasive plant species to detect and manage before we have major problems! Most are carried in by boat, and can reproduce by just small fragments. So, if a boat has been in the water of another lake within 5 days of coming to Crystal, all I can say is danger, danger!! Clean the boat, motor, and trailor of any plant debris and empty bilge water before launching! Tell your friends and family!!

We need everyone's assistance in helping to watch for invasive plant species in the lake! Go to the following link and print out the identification chart:

 It is important to catch them in the beginning stages before they really take hold in the lake. Contact CLA immediately. Suggest you keep a copy in your boat, pontoon, etc.
