News release on spiny waterfleas in Mille Lac
In May of this year, the Lake Vermilion Resort Association partnered with the Sportsmen’s Club of Lake Vermilion to provide an invasive species prevention training. Several volunteers and resort owners were taught how to inspect boats – what to look for, where to look, and how to pass the information on to boat owners so they can check their own boats as they transport them from one body of water to another.
The Lake Vermilion Resort Association remains committed to protecting Lake Vermilion for future generations. Please help us in our efforts.
