FISHING EVENT PLANNED
Looking forward to warmer weather? We'd like to announce our plans to organize a fishing contest on Eagle Lake this year. Although many details are yet to be finalized, we know that the event will be held on Saturday, June 1st, to coincide with the DNR free fishing weekend. Mark the date on your calendars, and join your neighbors and fellow members at Eagle Lake Park for some family fun. Details for this and other ELIA activities will soon appear in the Events section of our website.
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 this spring. 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

WORK HAS BEGUN
With winter fading away and hints of spring in the air, contractors were finally able to tackle some of the initial work planned for the Oakcrest Creek inlet. Many of the dead and diseased trees have been removed, with a cleaner and more naturally flowing creek soon to follow. This is only the beginning; subsequent phases are still under discussion within our Watershed Task Force. This first phase is located just west of Eagle Road near Michael's restaurant.
