Boat Landing Volunteers Needed Now

We  still have 5 weeks of Boat Landing monitoring to do this summer and  volunteers are needed,especially on Middle Eau Claire Lake. 

This weekend  the time slots of  Saturday 6-8 am and 4-6 pm on Middle Eau Claire Lake remain to be filled. 

Please contact Sally Pease at 715-559-0614 or at She will find slots for you to help on Middle Eau Claire or on other lakes.

Time volunteered serves to keep check on the  potential spread of aquatic invasive species and also gives us credit to aid in grant funding.

2017 Invader Crusader Award


The Wisconsin Invasive Species Council has awarded Friends of the Eau Claire Lakes along with the Barnes AIS Committee the 2017 Invader Crusader Award
This award is for outstanding volunteer efforts in the battle against invasive species. The award is given to a small number of people or organizations based upon their commitment to stopping the spread of invasive species through education, on-the-ground management and control, or research.
The Friends of the Eau Clarie Lakes Area  received this award because of the efforts of many of our members who volunteer at landings for Clean Boats Clean Waters (CBCW), and act as shoreline or water quality monitors. In addition our members and organization have provided funding for paid CBCW inspectors and for AIS clean-up efforts in the Eau Claire Lakes Area.
Our members and everyone in our organization is to be congratulated on this award.
