Call to Action
We all know the story. Things that don’t belong in the ecosystem, like invasive plants, shouldn’t be there. They disturb the balance that nature so carefully created. The result is almost always bad. Prevention is always the best solution. While good prevention costs money, it is far less than fighting an invasion.
The Keoka Lake Emergency Fund (KLEF) has been established to ensure that lake goers are educated, resources are trained, and action plans are in place. If an invasion is spotted then then the right resources can be applied immediately to prevent an all out war. This is what will keep our lake beautiful for generations to come.
KLEF is based on the experience from lake associations around us. We have included some of their stories and what we have learned from them. These lakes are fighting and generally winning. They have seen the damage that can be done to recreation, property values, and water quality. We want to make sure that their story does not become our story.
