The Courte Oreilles Lakes Assoc. will sponsor a project to conduct a baseline point-intercept plant survey and complete an Aquatic Plant Management Plan for Big Courte Oreilles Lake. Project goals includes: 1)Develop an APM plan to guide management efforts of both native and invasive plants; 2) Complete a plant survey to provide a baseline of the existing plant community; 3) Develop an early detection and rapid response plan; 4) Develop an invasive species prevention strategy including education and monitoring; 5) Maintain a healthy aquatic plant community. Project deliverables include: 1) A comprehensive APM plan; 2) Interpretation of the results of the aquatic plant survey; 3) Provide maps (including CLP beds) to the lake association for management; 4) An early detection/rapid response plan for aquatic invasive species (AIS); 5) An AIS prevention strategy. Specific conditions: 1) The WDNR will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project; 2) Contact UW-Extension staff for information on training, workshops or educational materials for the AIS Monitoring (Laura Herman, 715-365-8998) Program.; 3) Begin implementing the pre and post monitoring program following DNR protocol; 4) Provide hard copy of point intercept data in proper spreadsheet format.
