Visitors and property owners alike will benefit from three brochures recently published by the Town of Barnes. The brochures are tailored to Tomahawk/Sand Bar, Upper Eau Claire and Middle Eau Claire lakes and provide information on boating safety and preventing the spread of aquatic invasive plants. Of particular interest is information on which invasive(s) are present in each lake and where they have been found. It’s important for boaters to be aware of these areas so special care can be taken to not motor through patches and contribute to their spread. Plant identification is also included so boaters can report additional sightings to boat landing monitors or the Barnes Town Office. To download and view the brochures, click on ‘Aquatic Invasive Species’ at the top of this page.
