Thank you to the Gull Chain of Lakes Association
Everyone at MAISRC would like to extend a huge thank you to the Gull Chain of Lakes Association (GCOLA) for their extremely generous recent gift of $25,000 to support the Center’s research. Given the threats within the chain of lakes, GCOLA is particularly interested in the Center’s efforts on prevention and control of zebra mussels and Eurasian water milfoil. This is the second gift of $25,000 made by GCOLA to MAISRC.
The Gull Chain of Lakes Association is an alliance of watershed property interests within the Gull Chain of Lakes in Cass and Crow Wing Counties. They are devoted to the restoration and continued preservation of the highest water quality and environmental standards achievable, promotion of the responsible use of land and water resources, and recreational safety on the Gull chain of lakes. Their primary responsibilities include educating members about best management practices to improve water quality, water safety, and prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
When presenting their gift, Gull Chain of Lakes Association board chairman Uldis Birznieks said, “We are pleased to continue to support the promising work that MAISRC is doing with regard to zebra mussels, Eurasian water milfoil, and more. As an alliance of conscientious lake users, we feel a responsibility to support this research to the best of our ability. We hope to serve as a model for other lake associations who share our goal of finding innovative solutions to Minnesota’s AIS problems.”
Your donations allow MAISRC to respond quickly and with flexibility to emerging AIS issues and needs. Please consider a gift today – thank you for helping make our work possible.
