Reminder – You Need a Permit

Summer at the lake means swimming, and a recent television ad is showing how easy it is to eradicate weeds. Please remember, you need a permit to apply ANY herbicide or pesticide in or around water. The MN DNR has an application ready for you to complete. You can find it here.

 

LARA Has Accomplished a “Few” Things in the Past Year…

LARA is keenly aware that our members pay dues to us each year, and in return, they expect us to do good things with their hard-earned money. LARA board members are all volunteers with busy lives, but we are passionate about doing what is good for our members and what is good for our county’s public waters. Click here to see some examples of what your money and your support accomplished over the past year.

 

Citizen Action Network

Citizens Action Network (CAN) is your Lake Association’s tool for lake and river advocacy. You CAN check up on important bill status, write your legislators, send letters to the editors of media in your area, track the work of legislative committees, see how your legislator voted on a specific bill and more. With CAN, you CAN and will make a difference. No one else is going to protect your lakes for you. It is up to each of us. Sign up for MLR’s Citizen Action Network (CAN) emails.
