Clear Lake Township Meeting's
The new meeting location is now at the Clear Lake City Hall (sold the old town hall last year and currently building a new town hall). Also, due to the COVID-19, they are holding our monthly board meeting via teleconferencing until further notice.
Covid-19 is exponential in it's growth pattern. A pattern in nature where growth starts out small (linear) and reached a "knee" where the growth is explosive until the food source is used up.
Minnesota is close to that "knee" and we have a chance of slowing the problem before it "explodes" where the US in general is an example of trying to control after the "knee" is past.
A good example is Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) found in Rush Lake in 2013-14 which was expected to have exponential growth and become unable to navigate within 8 years. We are 7 years into that infection and through intense management have less EWM than 2014. (0 plants in 2020! )
Working together we can manage invasive's we have done it before by planning. If we go 5 years without EWM the DNR considers it eradicated.
For 7 years volunteer & paid divers have hand pulled surveyed plants. Extra effort done checking the entrance to Briggs to prevent spreading to other lakes. Chemical treatment done where hand pulling was not practical. - Contact tracing and isolation of the infection becomes easier as time goes on provided you don't let up til it is gone.
Not letting up makes it over with sooner....
