Tomahawk Lake needs volunteers
The Tomahawk Lake Association (TLA) Clean Boats/Clean waters team of volunteers urgently needs YOU to help provide inspection and education at three public boat landings on Tomahawk Lake. The goal of the initiative is to prevent the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species by monitoring boats entering and leaving the landings.
Why is this important? Besides protecting our lake, the hours volunteers spend can contribute on a “same as cash” basis to match DNR Aquatic Invasive Species grants made to the TLA. Volunteer hours accrue at a rate of $12 per hour. In 2008, Volunteers generated a cash value of nearly $4,000.
It’s easy and flexible.
- There is no minimum time commitment needed per day. Volunteers are asked to make a minimum of a 4 hour commitment over the summer. For example, a minimum commitment could be fulfilled 1 hour over 4 days, or 4 hours in one day.
- Once you are trained, you can “show up” at a landing on any day or time, put in some hours and report back to Ned Greedy.
We ask that you commit to the following:
- Please call Ned Greedy at email@example.com or 715-358-7896 to volunteer.
- Please encourage your neighbors and family members to volunteer.
