Shoreland and Shallows Survey

This effort follows the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) protocol for assessing and documenting the shoreland and shallow water habitat of a subject lake.  It includes circumnavigating the lake in a boat positioned relatively close to shore.  Observations are recorded about the near shore riparian area (e.g., trees, shrubs, grass, lawns, structures, erosion, etc) and the shallow water habitat. Special attention is given large woody habitat in the shallow water. Each large piece of wood is counted and marked with GPS coordinates and later mapped. Finally, photos are taken of the shoreline around the entire shoreline. This activity might take two or three days on lakes the size of Pickerel and Crane Lakes.

Aquatic Invasive Survey (AIS) and EWM Survey

AIS will follow the WDNR protocol for determining the presence of aquatic invasive species (both plants and animals). It will involve specific stops at various locations in the lake to make observations.  It will also include collection of samples. This survey usually takes about 4 hours on a lake the size of Pickerel Lake.

(See June 6 EWM description below.)

Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) Survey (If time allows, begin AIS)

Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) is an aquatic invasive species known to be present in Pickerel and Crane Lakes.  This effort will specifically survey the lakes to determine the extent of this species in the lakes for later representation on maps.  GPS coordinates will be used for recording locations. We anticipate that this survey may take a day on Pickerel Lake and a day on Crane Lake.
