Why You Should Join
If you are a lake property owner, local business or concerned citizen, we would like to have you as a member of our Lake Association. Membership is only $60.00 per year.
Managing our two lakes is a major undertaking. As we talk with property owners around the lakes, there is a fairly strong belief from some of them that the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources should be responsible for the management of the lakes and we have already paid for them with our tax dollars. Though this may seem a valid position, it is not the way it works. The DNR does not have the human resources to actively manage Wisconsin's 15,000 lakes nor will they in the future. As you will see, if you look at the Finances section , we receive thousands of dollars from the DNR and some "hands on" support but not nearly enough to completely manage the lakes.
The reality is that interested citizens must lead the management effort with the assistance of the DNR, the county and the towns. This is where the Minocqua/Kawaguesaga Lakes Protection Association comes in. We are the group of volunteers who carry the bulk of the lakes management burden. To do this we need money, political persuasive power and talent. The money and political influence come from our membership. We would be delighted to add you to our membership roll. Please click on the Membership/Contributions Payment Form below.
Many of our members make financial contributions over and above the $60.00 membership fee. Many of these dollars are tagged to the control of Eurasian watermilfoil since this is a recurring annual expenditure for as far as we can see. We have needs for additional funds for studies, boat inspector expense (Clean Water,Clean Boats) etc.
