10/04/2018 - Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations

Welcome to Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations (HC COLA) 2018 "Eyes on the Water" on-line survey. I invite you to participate in this very important "Eyes on the Water" survey and help us prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species in Hubbard County. HC COLA continues to expand our "Eyes on the Water" with over 220 volunteers joining our lake monitoring campaign in 2018. We hope you become one of them too.


With the discovery of Eurasian Water Milfoil in Bad Axe Lake, Zebra Mussels in Garfield Lake and the more recent discovery of Starry Stonewort in Wolf Lake in northern Hubbard County, it is essential for lake associations in Hubbard County to expand their "eyes on the water" looking for AIS. Early detection is the best defense if a lake is infested with an invasive species.


The survey will take approximately 5 to 7 minutes to complete. Should you have any questions about this study, please contact Dan Kittilson at, 218-732-5566 or Jeff Mosner at, 218-732-0707.

Please use the following link to participate in the survey:


Thank you for your time and consideration of this survey.

Bob Bray, President Big Sand Lake Association

09/18/2018 - BSLA newsletter volunteer needed

BSLA needs a volunteer to be the editor for the BSLA newsletter. We publish two newsletters a year, fall and spring. We will solicit articles from the board and members. We do pay to have someone professionally organize the newsletter layout, and we pay a printing company to print and mail the newsletter. The volunteer editor will gather and organize the articles and work with the newsletter layout person. If you want to volunteer to be the newsletter editor you can contact me on Nextdoor or email me at Please volunteer to help us publish the newsletter. We rely on volunteers for everything we do, so please help us.

Thanks, Bob Bray
