We would like to thank the Cambridge School District for participating in our Pontoon Classroom.  It was a great day to have Ms. Leverson's class learn about Lake Ripley.  This great group of students collected water quality data, sampled bottom sediments, discussed the watershed, and identified aquatic plants.  Thank you to Paul Garrison from the WNDR for participating!

The LRMD is applying for a Healthy Lakes Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to help lakeshore owners put in lake friendly landscaping.  If you have been thinking of installing a rain garden, lakeshore garden, tree fall, or diversion practice, please contact the office to be included in the grant.  Each project may be eligible for $1000.00.  Our grant deadline is February 1st.  Even if you're early in your planning, pledging now will include you in the grant application.  You have two years to complete the project! A win for your pocket book, a win for Lake Ripley, and a win for our future generations of lake lovers!
