Our annual Ice-Out Clean Up is Sunday, March 1st at the DNR Boat Launch in Chisago City. All CLLA members are invited to meet at the launch at Noon to hand out garbage bags, remind people to tidy-up, and help clean up. Around 2pm we’ll be finished up and head over to the Uncommon Loon. Come lend a hand!
Dress for the weather and bring your snowmobile, ATV or a vehicle with a trailer. It is also helpful to bring an ice pick, shovel, and/or a 5-gallon bucket. Let’s keep the trash from getting into our lakes!

Why – Fight Water Pollution Near Your Home
Phosphorus is a major source of water pollution that causes excessive growth of algae. Surfaces, such as city streets and parking lots, provide a pathway for phosphorus to get into our local lakes. Phosphorus on streets comes from decaying organic matter such as leaves, branches and loose dirt.
Bring work gloves and rakes if you have them. All leaves raked will be bagged and brought to the area compost site by the Lake Association Volunteers. Event is canceled in case of rain.
