[DNR] DNR grants to address invasive aquatic vegetation
Start Date: 4/3/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/3/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Department of Natural Resources grants totaling more than $693,000 will be used to fund the battle against invasive aquatic vegetation in Indiana’s lakes.
 
The new grants were awarded by DNR director Rob Carter, and are provided through the Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) program in the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife.
 
The 37 projects involve 53 lakes in 14 counties. They were selected from a number of applications submitted by local sponsors who commit to sharing a portion of the total cost. DNR's portion comes from the LARE fee paid annually by boat owners to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The grants allow for the completion of projects that would be difficult for local organizations to fund on their own.
 
“We are pleased to partner with local sponsors in supporting these projects to improve aquatic habitat and enhance recreational opportunities for boating and fishing,” said Mark Reiter, director of DNR Fish & Wildlife.

The projects also provide economic benefits to the associated lake communities by offering increased opportunities for those who fish or pleasure-boat. LARE is a user-funded program in which those who boat help support the efforts to improve and enhance the lakes. Lake users will benefit from efforts to control or manage non-native invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil, curly-leaf pondweed, and starry stonewort.
