Wild Lakes Paddle with Susan Knight

July 29

Join Susan Knight from the University of Wisconsin-Trout Lake Limnology Lab for a wild lake paddle on Frog Lake in the Frog Lake and Pines State Natural Area.

We will meet at the Frog Lake State Natural Area at 10 a.m. and conclude by 12:30. Frog Lake SNA is 0.6 miles south on Hwy. 47 from the intersection of Hwy. 51 and 47 in Manitowish. There is a tiny dirt drive on the right that leads into a small parking lot that can hold 5 cars. If the lot is full, please park along Hwy. 47. A short 100 yard carry-in is required to reach the put-in.

Participants need to minimally bring a kayak or canoe, paddle, and pfd. Binoculars and cameras are advised if you feel safe paddling with them. Bring water and snacks as needed. There are no facilities available at the landing. Mosquitoes can be difficult at the landing, but once on the water, they are usually fine.
Susan Knight is the interim director of Trout Lake Station, a field station for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Limnology in Boulder Junction. Her work involves research on aquatic invasive plants, aquatic plant identification, plant surveys, and technical review of state-wide lake management plans. She is fascinated by bogs and is especially fond of bladderworts and other carnivorous plants.

This program is sponsored by ICORE. There is a limit of 10 boats for this event, so please RSVP once per boat (not per person) at Meetup.com.
