Pink Buckets

Help Stop the Spread of AIS

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) are spread from place to place in several ways. One way happens when fragments break off existing plants and are transported or float to other locations in the water. Eventually these fragments take root and a new plant is born, and more of the lake is negatively impacted by the new growth in a new area.

ERCLA is proud to offer you an alternative to allowing these new plants to come into existence. We have placed bright pink buckets for you to use while on the water at nine different boat landings within the Eagle River Chain of Lakes.

The Pink Bucket program has been well received. All users are asked to do is simply collect the fragments from the water and dispose of the plant materials when leaving the water at the boat landing.

Please return the bucket so others can use the buckets too.

This is just way that ERCLA is working hard to help aid in the efforts to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species in the Eagle River Chain of Lakes.
