Watershed Study. The Clean Lakes Alliance is seeking volunteers to help with a lake user survey at nearby public beaches, boat landings and lakeside parks.  The information will be part of a watershed-wide study to evaluate public perceptions and the value of our lakes to the community.  Help is needed between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  Lake-access locations, days and time blocks can be tailored to each volunteer’s interest level and availability.  To sign up or learn more about this opportunity, please contact Paul at 255-1000 or paul@cleanlakesalliance.com.  For more info, go to: Lake User Survey – Clean Lakes Alliance
