Keep Big Sand Lake Beautiful
The best way to keep Big Sand Lake beautiful is for all of us to take responsibility for its future and contribute to this critical goal of keeping Big Sand Lake clean and void of invasive species.
Our desire to keep Big Sand Lake beautiful is being threatened. Invasive species have become a major issue in the lakes of Minnesota. Lakes in our immediate area are experiencing Zebra Mussels, Curly Pond Weed, and Eurasian Water Milfoil.
In the event, Big Sand Lake becomes threatened with an Invasive Species, the Charitable Lake Fund will help us take immediate action for diminishing or eliminating the infestation.
The Project Fund is available for projects to enhance the preservation of Big Sand Lake and its environs. These types of projects require a larger dollar investment then could be achieved through the use of the Big Sand Lake Association Treasury.
As citizens, users, and residents our goal is to Take Action with proactive measures to protect our lake for current and future generations.
