Respect Wall Lake
Managing lakes is difficult work. According to the faculty at The Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, managing lakes is a universally challenging problem. It is common on inland lakes for there to be a divide between those residents who view their lake as a big swimming pool that exists for their pleasure, and those who understand that a lake is part of a delicate ecosystem, of which we are a part and can greatly affect.
The lakes that thrive are those that have few people near them, or those that are managed well. Those lakes that are managed well have a vibrant lake association with an inspired volunteer board and an enthusiastic membership. These lake boards typically have members that cycle through with renewed periods of inspiration, leadership, and sacrifice and make a difference for their lakes. Roles of lake associations typically include education, organization, community activities, and advocacy. Lake associations are typically funded by membership dues and donations.

Wall Lake has survived everything Mother Nature could throw at her for 10,000 years. In just 100 years, human activities - especially those that threaten wetlands, or transport invasive species, could destroy Wall Lake.
Thank you in advance for doing whatever you can to preserve Wall Lake.
