Reports and Documents
The Finger Lake Stewardship Program results from the efforts of The Friends of Finger Lake Association, Inc. (FOFL). The Finger Lake Stewardship Program views stewardship of the lake as an ongoing endeavor that is integrated, coordinated, and administered by the FOFL. This perspective reflects the appropriate range of geographic scales from which to approach lake stewardship: a “lake specific” focus that goes hand-in-hand with waterscape-wide awareness. Although this aquatic plant management plan (APMP) addresses Finger Lake in Vilas County, Wisconsin, it maintains the waterscape perspective crucial to effective lake stewardship. This is especially important when it comes to addressing of aquatic invasive species (AIS).
