Event Description
Department of Natural Resources grants totaling nearly $520,000 will be used to fight invasive aquatic vegetation in Indiana’s lakes.
  
The grants were awarded by DNR director Cameron F. Clark through the Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) program in the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife.
  
The 41 projects involve 63 lakes in 16 counties. They were selected from applications submitted by local sponsors who share at least 20 percent 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 are very difficult for local organizations to fund on their own.
  
“Selective treatments addressing these invasive plants in lakes helps to improve aquatic habitat and enhances recreational opportunities for fishing and boating,” said Mark Reiter, director of DNR Fish & Wildlife.
  
Lake users will benefit from efforts to control or manage aggressive non-native species, including Eurasian watermilfoil, curly-leaf pondweed, and starry stonewort that can take over and clog lakes, if unchecked. The grants can also provide economic benefits to lake communities by improving and increasing public access opportunities for those who fish or pleasure-boat.
