WHAT'S  NEW  AT  THE  LAKE

AIS Prevention Funding to Benefit East Two River and Eagles Nest Township

(3/8/2016) - St Louis County Commissioners have authorized the distribution of $23,441 to the Sportsmen’s Club of Lake Vermilion to expand during 2016 a zebra mussel habitat assessment project in Lake Vermilion’s eastern headwaters. Moderately elevated calcium in some Eagles Nest Township lakes and in Zebra MusselEast Two River raise the concern that zebra mussels – a serious aquatic invasive species (AIS) – might be able to live in those waters should they be accidentally introduced by boaters.

The Tower-Breitung Wastewater Board, the Eagles Nest Township Lakes Association, and UMD’s Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) have partnered with the Sportsmen’s Club to take water samples and measure stream flow rates to understand all natural and man-made calcium sources and how they vary seasonally. In addition, the Sportsmen’s Club will continue the zebra mussel habitat study begun in 2015 along the eastern shore of Lake Vermilion.

During 2017, the Sportsmen’s Club and its partners hope to begin correcting or managing man-made calcium sources to reduce concentrations to a level where a zebra mussel population could not become established.

Lake Vermilion Watercraft Inspectors Sought for 2016 Season

(2/15/2016) - The North St Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (NSLSWCD) and the Sportsmen’s Club of Lake Vermilion are jointly seeking watercraft inspectors for the 2016 boating season.

The SWCD will be hiring 12 to 25 part-time and full-time temporary employees for aquatic invasive species (AIS) Walleye inspection assignments at Lake Vermilion’s public and private launches. “The inspectors will be greeting boaters, checking boats entering and exiting the lake for AIS, and teaching boaters how to self-inspect their watercraft,” said Anita Provinzino, District Administrator.

“We’re seeking enthusiastic folks from young adults, who are looking for a seasonal job this summer, to retirees with a little extra time,” said Jeff Lovgren, Lake Vermilion AIS prevention leader. “A key requirement is a passion for protecting Lake Vermilion.”

The work assignments run from early May through October, but applicants do not have to be available for the entire period. The DNR will begin conducting training classes in April. Inspectors will be paid $12.50 per hour and will work 20-40 hours per week.
