2023 QLIA Annual Picnic – A HUGE success!
On 8/13/23 Reel Livin’ Resort was gracious and hosted our QLIA Annual Picnic. We had 91 attendees, no rain, special speaker from our Lake Planning Management consultant, Megan Mader with the NWRPC (Northwest Regional Planning Commission) and Michelle Keil even
brought an aquarium and facts to share knowledge about our invasive lake plants, specifically our EWM and HWM (Eurasian Water Milfoil and Hybrid EWM).
A special shout-out to all our volunteers who made the picnic a success from an educational standpoint and fundraising efforts! Please contact any QLIA board members if you have any questions and if you could not make it this year, please join us at the picnic in 2024. We will have more gatherings soon being that these in-person gatherings are productive and fun!
