North and South Twin Lakes, Vilas County - Critical Habitat Designation

Since North and South Twin Lakes are so large, with just over thirteen miles of shoreline, two days were needed to complete the

survey. The survey was conducted on August 6th and 27th, 2002 using the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources protocol

guidelines for conducting and implementing sensitive area surveys. Surveys of this type are an integrated team approach to resource

management, utilizing the expertise of many DNR resource managers. As a team, resource experts collaborate to identify locations

around a lake which are critical to the future health and balance of the lake's ecosystem. Sensitive area surveys will provide lake

organizations, owners of shoreline property, county zoning officials, DNR personnel, and other interested individuals with specific

management recommendations that can be used to help protect and improve the overall health of lakes.
