AND SO IT BEGINS
Residents along Lakeshore Drive will recognize this shoreline at Manor Bay Park, a common location for early ice formation on Eagle Lake. Taken on November 14, this image reminds us that a busy season of ice fishing is just around the corner. Be sure to use good judgment when testing the new ice, knowing that even two inches of clear ice is barely enough for a single person. Test at several locations as you make your way out onto the lake. Click here

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.
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
