While some might think these are beautiful flowers, purple loosestrife is highly invasive and can quickly take over an entire site. This aggressive plant is a nuisance around our lake, and if allowed to spread, can choke out native plant life and destroy food sources for wildlife. Proper and complete removal of the entire plant is necessary, and we can help. For more information, please visit our Contact Us
page and send a note to Shoreline Help Desk.
PHOTO CONTEST WINNERS
The talent of many local photographers was on display at the annual meeting in this year's Eagle Lake Photo Contest. Entries were impartially judged and winners were chosen in three categories, with a fourth award selected by vote of meeting attendees. The image of the sunset paddle boarder, taken by Kim Traxinger, won the People's Choice award. To view all of the winning entries, please visit our Photo page
and see if you agree with our photo judge.
ANNUAL MEETING A SUCCESS
Our 2018 Annual Meeting was very well attended on Saturday, August 25, at Dover Town Hall. We learned about the DNR assistance program for residential shoreline restoration, and the latest phosphorus reduction technology being considered for use at Eagle Lake. A water patrol update, the photo contest results, and a proposed fishing contest were also on the agenda. Thank you to all for participating.

WATERSHED TASK FORCE
You might not even be aware of the Oakcrest Creek inlet, where it is located, or how it contributes to the health of Eagle Lake. But thanks to the efforts of the Watershed Task Force, this will change in 2018. Legacy phosphorus, dead and diseased trees, and invasive species are among the issues to be addressed in efforts to restore the inlet to a more natural state. We might soon have an IESF on Eagle Lake! Click here
